As part of the self-guided walking tour that the tourist office has created we learnt about the beguines and visited the beguinage. It is a wonderfully serene place that is still in use today. Well worth a quick visit.

Well preserved and interesting with the museum that lies within its precincts. No longer occupied by lay religious women but still an area of private silence, occupied by single women.

Hidden away in the middle of the city lies this historic place. It is very impressive to be in a place which hasn't changed much over its hunderds of years of history

This Begijnhof is a beautiful quiet piece of the city. Small houses around the courtyard and little plots of gardening for the people that live there. Go check it out, but be quiet, because people actually live here.

This place is great to walk around in, sit and bring a book, or take a look into the chapel. The museum is inexpensive as well if you want to learn more about the Begijnhof.
