Pictures of the Plompetorengracht

Always the Domtoren
I wrote briefly about the Plompetorengracht last week and the history it has had moving from trade to noble residences to business over the past 600 years or so. I was walking along the canal last night after taking my dad to see the windmill here in town, and I got a few more photos that I thought I’d share. These are all looking south toward the center of town — as evidenced by the Domtoren in the distance. If you look closely in the photo above, you can also see a bit of the apse of the cathedral poking out on the left behind the lamps. I also liked the reflection of the Domtoren in the canal.

This is one of the bridges on the northern end of the canal.
And here are a few of the buildings on the street. Most are fairly simple, but still elegant and obviously built for wealthier residents.
