  Kloosterstraat, south side
by sachara

The Kloosterstraat, meaning monastery street, is just south of the place of the former monastery. This street is by its name a remembrance of the origin of Assen, being the building of the monastery of ''Maria in Campis'' in 1258.

At the time the monastery still existed there were allready buildings at the southside of the Kloosterstraat, like the farmhouses of the monastery in the 17th century.

The present building, you see at the picture, is a former farmhouse, built in 1820 and restored in 1972.

Address: Kloosterstraat 6-8
Directions: The Kloosterstraat is in the citycentre, just east of the Brink.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
