It is the statue of Simon Stevin, a Belgian mathematician, with the Church of our Lady as background. The view is amazing and quiet

Just a breath away from the center. Great view while approaching. Lots of restaurants around, nice place to cool a little before continuing tour way to the cathedral.

This is a small square with a statue of Simon Stevin. It is a 5 minute walk from Market square. There are lots of restaurants with outside seating. Perfect for lunch or a coffee.

A statue stands in the square completely surrounded by restaurants. All sorts of cuisine on offer at all price ranges. You can sit and rest at one end beside the children's carousel.

We call this the small square. It is just off the main shopping street and just before the Markt. It is a great place to sit and have a quiet coffee.
