“I highly recommend the " brakke brunch" on the Sunday. From 11.30 till 15u. For 13euro its " all you can eat" Its located at a nice square with an outside terrace. ”

“De Drie Gezusters isn’t the cheapest, it doesn’t provide the best quality drinks in town and the atmosphere can be a little crowded. So why visit? Because with its collection of twenty connected bars and 3750 person capacity, it’s the largest collective bar in Europe featuring beer taps. It can be found dominating the entire southern side of the Grote Markt. Visit it for the experience!”
