Botermarkt

View on a sunny Botermarkt (lit; 'Butter Market') in the centre of Kampen, with the Nieuwe Toren ('New Tower') in the background.
During the Middle Ages this square was the location for a butter market, hence the name. Before that it was a cemetery belonging to a nearby monastery.

  1. A colourful and joyful scene. I must be picking up this Dutch language - I guessed that "botermarkt" meant "butter-market", if only everything in life was so simple!

  2. Wonderful view.
    I love these checkered houses. They are as gingerbread houses.
