    Our guide Astrid was really well-read and gave us a great event. She had a profound knowledge of the history of the market hall and really interesting information. I would book them again at any time. Anyone who wants to learn a lot about the history and the building will have a lot of fun with this event.

    The market hall is not very exciting in the end, more of a feeding hall, as our guide explained to us. The tasting was rather ridiculous, we couldn't do much more than look at the cheese. On the other hand, the view from Witte Hus and the walk into the cubic houses was worth it. Even if they are getting on in years, it's still an exciting idea to live.

    Because there were cancellations, we got a private tour from Astrid, an enthusiastic guide with a lot of knowledge and passion for the city. Nice tour in the market hall. Tasting (quantity) is not much, but it was tasty! The market vendor talks about his merchandise, which we found interesting. View from the white house was beautiful! Then looked at the cube houses. With more background information you look at it differently.
