"The Begijnhof" Beguinage - Begijnhof Tip by tvdm

Beguinage - Begijnhof, Brugge: 60 reviews and 104 photos


Visit the Begijnhof (beguinage) and Minnewater (Lake of Lovers). Here's the legendary serenity and romance you were looking for, and you just might spot a singing nun here, too!
This complex is one of the most beautiful in Belgium. The quiet waters are filled with swans and the walled beguinage offers a peaceful break in busy Bruges. This is still a place of worship so your co-operation in behaving and dressing decently is greatly appreciated.

Directions: The beguinage lies in the south of the city centre. It's only a 10min walk from the market square, and a beautiful one, for that matter!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
