  Traders houses became restaurants on cosy "Hof"
by Pavlik_NL

In most Dutch towns the central sqaure is called "Grote Markt" (Big Market) or something appointing to the trade that was made here (it was one of the city rights to hold market on certain days). In Amersfoort however this place is called "Hof" (Court). This central place was the anyway marketsquare and is surrounded by beautiful traders houses. In present days many of them have changed into HORECA-businesses (HOtels, REstaurants of CAfe's). This way it still is a busy and cosy place, especially in weekends and summertime, when the terraces are buzzing with life.
