The central square of Nijmegen is Grote Markt, located at the centre of Nijmegen’s historic core. Devastated by the World War II bombings, the city was later extensively restored; the result is more than efficient!
Grote Markt is dominated by the statue of Mariken van Nieumeghen, heroine of a local Dutch tale, who was tricked by the Devil and after her long self-punishment, she was forgiven by God.

The City Hall was designed by Herman van Herengave and it is elaborately decorated with sculptures and statues depicting royal personalities, emperors and other notable figures of the region.
