The Hengelo Market Square in essence is a dull square with state of the art tiles, 3 pilars with spotlights in between and the Brink tower with advertisement screens and a digital clock that was one step beyond.
Beside the local market on Wednesdays and Saturdays a couple of times per year the square is transformed into a place with activities like the Tropical Night, Night of Hengelo (bicycle races), Uitmarkt (start of the theater season), a Christmas Market or a Pop concert.
