The Market Square , in the shadow of the majestic belfry tower, was the scene of mediëval festivals, fairs, tournaments, uprisings and executions. A place full of history! Today, the square serves as e meeting place for the locals and the three tot four million visitors who flock to the town every year. The most striking building is without any doubt the Belfry.
This square was used as a marketplace since 958, and a weekly market was held here from 985. Today the large square is ringed by banks and many guild houses converted into restaurants. The Markt is filled with pedestrians and bicyclists, and is a good place to start or end a walking tour of the city.
