The street leading from the railway station (Stationsstraat) to the St Servaas bridge is a twin-carriageway boulevard but not a particularly busy one regarding road traffic as most vehicles cross the city's two main bridges on the inner ring road.
The centre of the boulevard towards the station end is used as a public performance area and on the Sunday I was there I was treated to an excellent performance by the local brass band. They played an interesting set of classical brass pieces as well as adaptations of a few pop classics and what was particularly impressive was the age range of the players.
This was something I'd just caught by accident, having arranged to meet Valentina (MacedonianUK) at the atmospheric taproom bar of the Hotel Poshoorn where I also enjoyed a glass or two of the excellent locally-brewed Gulpener.
I assume the tourist office has listings of the events here but even if there's nothing scheduled it's still a lively area with some excellent bars and restaurants.
