An intimate town square where you can enjoy a good drink in passing or an extensive dinner. Tip: restaurant and wine bar Wicked Wines, with a heated terrace for those nippy nights.
A very unique terrace by the water, accessible by taking a hand-operated ferry across (you could also walk through Westerbroekpark, but that’s no fun, is it?). A terrace boat is moored here, allowing you to enjoy a great drink or lunch on the water, and you can hire rowing boats as well!
