Thirsty and/or hungry? Go to the Groenplaats and enjoy. The Grand bazar is also worth while. When we were there, a lot of stands were at the market place with even more food and beverages.

Great place to start from if you want to explore the city. Fantastic underground parking (Groenplaats Indigo). Lots of restaurants/cafes/bars to choose from. If you are looking to do some shopping, you don't have to go far to find them.
