Law Courts

This building has been in use for more than 160 years.
To solve the problem of the permanent lack of space in this neo-classical building, a modern building for the law courts was erected on the edge of the city.
Today the old law courts are still used by the Assize Court and the Court of Appeal. This is the spot where many shopping trips at Veldstraat begin and end.
