In Heerlen it is Easter Saturday and especially: partytime! A medieval market with calligraphers and stand workers, a bagpipe orchestra but also book sellers present their delicacies. All this against the backdrop of Schunck, the first real department store in the Netherlands, completed in 1935. The modernist design of the Glaspaleis / Glass palace, as it is popularly called, is by architect Peutz. It symbolizes the prosperity in which Heerlen, as a coalmining town, was at that time.
