“Heerlijke frietjes en frituursnacks, rechtover de Versmarkt, van waar ook de biodrankjes en biertjes komen. Toffe stek, en ook aan de vegetariërs is er gedacht. Heel tof zitten, kan er soms wat drukker zijn, maar zo hoort het!!”
“- depending on the current exposition you can experience all kind of comtemporary arts, Belgian or international - this museum is next to your stay at my apt and you can combine your visit with a walk in the parc”
“My favorite museum in town! The extensive collection shows design from the Middle Ages until now and its impact on daily life. Also the temporary expositions are often worth a visit. ”
