  • Nice but... We passed here on a very sunny Thursday afternoon in the Easter holiday around 2pm and actually there was virtually none of the terraces open. Had however been nice to eat something here and enjoy the sun.

  • The old harbour ' the Bassin' is located on the north side of the city centre, a few minutes walk from the market. The port was built in the first half of the 19th century, mainly for the supply of the new industries in this district (glass, ceramics, paper) and the transport over water of the manufactured products. The Bassin is connected to the canal Zuid-Willems and via a lock with the Meuse. In the old restored vaulted cellars are now a number of nice restaurants and bars with terraces along the water and located. On the south side there are also some restored old warehouses. In the summer months, the harbour is also used as a marina and you can rent boats. On the north side of the harbour are the Lumière Cinema and the Music Hall ' music Foundry '. It is a pity that the port is hidden from sight from the road through a brick balustrade, and the signposting to it is pretty bad. But the area is really worth a visit.

  • Super cosy and central location and friendly harbour master. Port money is reasonable. Toilet-and club building is not clean. Trash was not emptied, choking the spinning inside and out. If this improves, then 5 stars.

  • The port is fine and also the port masters are extremely helpful and friendly!! Only the toilet building is downright nasty. You come out dirtier than there there.
