I'm with Gore, it's one of my least favourite cities.
And I LOVE it.
NOT the shit red light area which is seedy and commercial. But the ouitskirts are great. Some excellent bars and small restaraunts if you know where to go. And so laid back. Get totally chilled when I'm there and that's without sampling the black leb.
Concur with HeyHo - like to partake myself, but there are plenty of places you can do it without rubbing shoulders with low life scum. As an alternative, Arnhem, or Breda or pop over the border to Antwerp - now that is a city that will pleasantly surprise....
