The groenplaats is a central square in town with the main attraction being the view on the cathedral. Cafés and restaurants in the site with missed quality.

The square itself is pretty non descript, however there are various cafes and restaurants around it. It is a premetro stop as well which can be convenient for getting from/to the train station.

It's a square for meeting place and it's a train, tram and bus station itself. There are plenty of shopping, restaurants and bar around it. HardRock Cafe and Mango is located here. There is an international inspired food court above the train station called Mercado.

The Hilton is in this square, and it offers many food (and beverage) choices. It is also next to the Cathedral and Grote Markt is nearby. Very nice central square. You can get a nice picture of the Cathedral from here.
