Well worth a look inside if you have 15 minutes spare, especially to see the ornate decoration in the main hall.

The old stock exchange has an interesting story with the coats of Arms, height requirement, etc. I thought it was funny that the back side has an allege steeple that exceeded the King's specifications!

This is a very beautiful historic building and you can walk through the centre of it. When we were here there was a vintage market inside selling a wide variety of collectables.

wanneer je de oude beurs binnen loopt waan je je in oudere tijden. Herleef de tijd dat hier gehandeld werd en overlegd. When you enter the old stock exchange you feel the atmosphere of ancient time, in that people were trading goods

This is a lovely building with some interesting history. There is an antiques market inside mostly selling old magazines and old collectables. Many of the stalls appear to be closed during the week.
