  The Fishbanks, where still the fish is sold
by Pavlik_NL

Inside a squareshaped street between the Markt (Central Square) and the Old Church are strange low buildings that stand against the usual canalhouses that Delft has so many of. These are the "Fish banks" or the places where the fish used to be sold. Now-a-days still there is a "visboer" (litteraly translated this means "fish farmer", but we actually mean a "fish sales man") present . The variety changed enormously, but the price of the fish is ... high.

Directions: Walk over the "Koornmarkt" along the canal, back to the Old Church and turn right there.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
