Prinsenhof (Cour du Prince)

Interesting
Initially a women's convent, these late Gothic buildings (C15-16C) became the residence of William the Silent in 1572, and he was assassinated there in 1584. In the 17C, the palace was converted into a cloth market. At the present time, it houses a museum containing a large number of memorabilia from the 80 Years' War (1568-1648) and the House of Orange-Nassau. The museum also exhibits still life paintings, group portraits of civic guards and some beautiful tapestries.
