We attended the opening of several new food stalls in the popular food hall, de Foodhallen. It was a never ending parade of delicious German, Italian, Mexican, Asian, French and vegetarian delicacies. Come see what's new!
Meet the feline stars of the city who live in popular cafes to keep the mice away. Customers find it "gezellig" (cozy) and it's a natural form of pest control. Plus a floating shelter for cats and a cafe where you specifically go to eat with their 8 cats. Cat people rejoice!
