As part of the self-guided walking tour that the tourist office has created we learnt about the beguines and visited the beguinage. It is a wonderfully serene place that is still in use today. Well worth a quick visit.

Well preserved and interesting with the museum that lies within its precincts. No longer occupied by lay religious women but still an area of private silence, occupied by single women.

Hidden away in the middle of the city lies this historic place. It is very impressive to be in a place which hasn't changed much over its hunderds of years of history

A peaceful garden surrounded bi old brick buildings, with an elegant chapel. On the edge of the historical centre.

This Begijnhof is a beautiful quiet piece of the city. Small houses around the courtyard and little plots of gardening for the people that live there. Go check it out, but be quiet, because people actually live here.

WoW, the silene and the very quiet atmosphere in the center of Breda is unbelievable! It feels like you are back in the middle-ages, although the small houses are stil in use by bachelors.

I asked my hotel front desk of a nice place to walk in Breda and was told the Begijnhof Museum was quiet and peaceful, but work seeing. How right they were. A former convent, it is now beautifully kept with wonderful garden walk. The residents...More
