Beguine Community (Begijnhof)

Highly recommended
Although situated in the centre of the city, this hofje (inner courtyard) is a haven of peace. Each of its tall facades (17C and 18C) is fronted by a little garden, and the whole complex is organised around an open space and the ancient church of the Beguines (a semi-religious community). The oldest house in the city, Het Houten Huys (the wooden house), can also be seen here.
