    Flea Market at the Creatieve Fabriek: More second hand stuff

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Nov 11, 2012
    Creatieve Fabriek Flea Market - Hengelo Ov
    1 more image

    After the Expo Center Fleamarket was stopped in mid 2012, new locations popped up where the markets were continued. GoPlanet at Enschede was the first, followed by Hangar 11 at the former Twente Airbase. Hall B06 of the Creatieve Fabriek (Creative Factory) was the nimber three. With its bright interior is far better than Go-Planet. Floor space is probably half of that of Go-Planet, but so is the admission fee of Euro 2.50.
    Parking is free and availabilty is no problem.

    Check the website-events section for the next market dates.

    What to buy: Second hand good.

    What to pay: Low prices

    De Brink Centre: The Modern Town's Landmark

    by johngayton Updated Aug 23, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sunday Evening View
    3 more images

    As a smallish Dutch town Hengelo has some interesting little shops and also has this modern shopping mall, the De Brink, which is more interesting as a piece of urban planning than it is for its shops.

    Post World War II (during which the town was heavily bombed) the local authorities attempted to rebuild the commercial centre around the marketplace. This proved to be relatively unsuccessful in attracting businesses and shoppers into the town and the market square became used mainly as a parking lot.

    In the 1990's the town's planners looked for innovative ideas and the mall's developers, Bolles and Wilson, came up with the idea of building a multi-use shopping mall which incorporated underground car parking, residential space and connected the town centre to the railway and bus stations.

    OK I was only here on a Sunday night and Monday morning and so can't attest to the success of the shopping bit but overall it certainly looks impressive. The towering concrete obelisk attracts the eye to the marketplace whilst the sleek steel-gantried walkway through the shops is visually inviting. The residential apartments are ideally located for both the town and the public transport termini and the parked cars are hidden from view.

    Whilst I'm not the world's biggest fan of modern architecture I quite liked this.

    What to buy: There's quite a good range of shops including a V&D department store, ABN Amro bank and a couple of cafes.
