    Unser Guide Astrid war wirklich sehr belesen und hat uns ein tolles Event beschert. Sie hatte ein profundes Wissen über die Geschichte der Markthalle und wirklich interessante Informationen parat. Ich würde sie jederzeit wieder buchen. Wer viel über die Geschichte und das Bauwerk erfahren möchte, hat mit diesem Event wirklich Spaß.

    Die Markthalle ist am Ende wenig spannend, eher eine Fresshalle, wie uns unser Führer erläuterte. Die Verkostung war eher lächerlich, nicht viel mehr als anschauen konnten wir den Käse. Gelohnt hat sich dagegen der Blick vom Witte Hus und der Gang in die Kubikhäuser. Auch wenn diese schon in die Jahre gekommen sind, immer noch eine spannende Idee zu wohnen.

    Omdat er afzeggingen waren, kregen wij een privé tour van Astrid, een enthousiaste gids met veel kennis en passie voor de stad. Leuke tour in de markthal. Proeverij (hoeveelheid) stelt niet veel voor, maar was wel lekker! De marktkoopman vertelt over zijn koopwaar, wat wij wel interessant vonden. Uitzicht vanaf het witte huis was prachtig! Daarna de kubuswoningen bekeken. Met meer achtergrondinfo kijk je er toch weer anders naar.
