Commanderie van St-Jean

Overlooking a small square, this brick building from the 15C and 16C is a former hospital. Founded in the 12C to house pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land, it came into the possession of the Order of the Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem in the 13C. Today the building is home to the Museumbrouwerij De Hemel brewery-museum. A guided tour acquaints visitors with brewing and distilling techniques and vinegar and mustard manufacture.
