When you visit Belgium cities or cities in the Netherlands or Germany, you find these markets everywhere. Cheese, fish, vegetables, cloth etc, etc.

Nice enough square with the usual cafes on most sides. Nice statue in the middle. Not quite sure what else to say to be honest.

Nothing to write home about. Just a place with restaurants to eat in. Definitely not a must-do in my books.
