Blinde-Ezelstraat (Blind Donkey Street)
Above, below, left, right, ahead and behind you: in Blind Donkey Street every square metre has something to notice. From the vaulting between the City Hall and the Civil Registry, to the black square on the side facade of City Hall, reminding us of how the facades looked in the 1970s, when motor traffic was still possible. Today, this is a vital pedestrian and cycling route, because this little street connects two attractions: Burg Square and the Fish Market. There are lots of legends to explain the name of the street, but in fact there was an inn here during the 15th century called Den Blinden Ezel (‘the blind donkey’).
