Het Begijnhof - The Beguinage :
You now enter the Beguinage through a handsome gate of more recent date than the close itself, which goes back to the 12th century. This inner garden with its spectacular trees is beautiful : the peacefulness will take your breath away. If you arrive just before noon, you should accept the invitation of the convent clock to go into the church where the Benedictine nuns, who have replaced the former Beguines, can be heard chanting prayers. Easter is the best time to be here, with the daffodils in full bloom.

Address: next to the Minnewaterpark
