Its streets are adorned with sculptures of art by the likes of Picasso and Rodin for passers-by to observe, free of charge! Other must-see attractions include the Grote of Sint-Laurenskerk church, Arboretum Trompenburg botanical garden, Euromast tower, Cool District and “The Destroyed City” war memorial.
