Crooks behind bars cannot be found in the Blokhuispoort
anymore. Those times are gone. A livelier environment exists
along the Oude and Nieuwe Oosterstraat not far from the prison.
From here you could walk to the Ossekop and the Uniabuurt. A few
old streets, with restaurants and bars. But if you’re not in the
mood for food then continue with the city walk along the Tweebaksmarkt and the Turfmarkt.
long time ago these city canals were full of life but the water
has been replaced by a wide paved street with parking spots on
either side. Some of the old buildings still show signs that
there once was a lot of commerce taking place around here.
