“Exactly one year ago today, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands opened the building to enormous crowds of onlookers. In the first week alone, 350.000 people visited the Markthal, and now, one year later, the building has received a total of 8 million visitors, far surpassing initial estimates of 4 million visitors in the first year, and topping cultural attractions such as the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sistine Chapel.”
