Between now and March I am gonna try and visit as many medieval places as possible! I have asked some friends if they would like to come along, as seeing places is always better with friends.
So the first place I am going to visit is Deventer with Freyk as my guide, and this is the hotel I will be staying at -

About the building:
In the early days, the hotel used to be a hospital (buildyear 1874).
and it is official dutch national heritage site. (we got 544 of them in Deventer )
For more info, let google-translate (or something else) translate the following page:
Deventer citycenter looks a bit like Thief's Audale.

Vampyr is now out, I am not a fan of third-person combat from a developer whose past history is bad teenager drama and a game I can't seem to recall right now, but I sure do like victorian london settings! Unfortunately, 50 dollars is too high of an admission ticket to just gawk at architectural pieces, so I'll just settle for the concept art from the game:

Yes a illuminated street at a neighourhood called "Bergkwartier" (trans. mountain quarters) in Deventer,
is nice in the night (or evening), but not for a thief,..
The bergkwartier is located on a hill.
In medival times, we called a hill, a mountain.
Because my country is flat (for the most part)
and in those years people have never seen a real mountain before,..

I also lived in Dutch Hanseatic League city, called Oldenzaal.
If you in 1744 are a convicted serial killer, people called you by your nickname Huttenkloas (Translated literally. "Cabin Clous")
and they ask you to take a seat,.... you dont want to do that.
Because as a punischment,
you will be pinned down on a chair for 114 days.
and after that, you get finally out of the chair
and they put on a breaking wheel to break all your bones to your death.

I love that it looks quite Thiefy despite being a brightly-lit afternoon. I think it's the light/shadow contrast that does it, along with the colours and of course the lovely buildings!

There's a restaurant in Antwerp called Pelgrom which is located in an old brick cellar below ground level. Its atmosphere is fantastic and very Thiefy thanks to the brick, low ceilings and doors, and it being lit mainly by candles.
EDIT: if anyone's in the area I highly recommend checking it out, and drinking a Westmalle or a Koninck "Triple D'Anvers"

Yes, but that would spoil the fun of our trip,..
You can post pictures, that you take during/after the trip, yourself.
I will post pictures after this, again.
@crabmusket, Nice pictures.
I have been in Antwerp in Belgium, too.
I love the "grote markt" (tranlate lit. "big market"-square) and your trainstation (inside picture)
(hyperlinks are to some google streetviews. just look around using your mouse)
(its also a member of the Hanseatic League,..)

More from Antwerp - I regret not taking more photos on this visit! Though my phone camera is a bit crap.
The old meat market has an intersting square out the front
The Steen, an old castle that is perfectly sized and interestingly shaped
The Plantin-Moretus museum which is all about some of the earliest printing presses:
