This huge 16th-century church is at the northern corner of the Grote Markt. Its tower, the Martinitoren , is 96m tall and is considered to have one of the most finely balanced profiles in the country. A climb to the top yields grand views.

Step around to the northeast where the Martinikerkhof is a large square surrounded by beautiful old houses. At the far corner, take take a breather at Prinsenhof , a 16th-century mansion with a gem of a little historic garden, the Prinsenhoftuin .
