On the sqaure you can find a shopping mall, and on the sides of the square are many shops. Many buses stop here and it's only a few minutes walk from the Central Station. Every Saturday there is a market, where you can a lot of fresh dutch food. Throughout the year there are quite some events. One of them is a big party for students.

Terschelling, OEROL Festival
From 15 until 24 June 2001 the 20th OEROL festival takes place on Terschelling. An International festival that uses the unique landscape as a fascinating decor of (street)theater, music and art.
The Jacobijnerkerk, also known as Grote Kerk ('great church') was built in the 13th century as the church of the Dominican monastery. In the 15th century the church was extended. After the Reformation the monastery was closed and the church became a protestant one. The choir became a mausoleum for the Frisian branch of the (Oranje-)Nassau family.
In the city center are some nice little streets and if you look carefully you can see some nice stones in the walls of the houses, like this one of a bull.
