The most important building in the Steenbakkerijstraat is the Main city church of the Moravian Brotherhood.
The rest of the street had fallen prey to the commercial changes demanding concrete and plastered stone, tasteless additions to the wooden buildings and more practical openings in the façades, leaving little of the old character.
Still, if one takes the time to look past the horrors of modernization, one can discover small gems of details, such as the ventilation turrets on the roof of #38 and the wrought ironwork of the baluster of the balcony at #30.
