Nice and quiet authentic place. Certainly worth a visit when you are in Breda. Like many places in this old city center.

Nice visit on a rainy day. Easy to get to and next to a pretty park. I’d recommend on a one or two day visit here.

When you are in Breda, this is a must-see. Very cute and small community. All is in balance: houses, art, antiques, flowers and church. A quiet place to dream and just stroll along for a bit

Estonishing beauties and background on the town’s history are displayed in a compact area. It is right in the City centre at the historic Catharina street. The Begijnhof offers a relaxing feeling of a garden in the middle of the historic town.

It is a very historical and cosy place, sometimes in summer they offer local honey and wine to taste.

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.

Breda's Begijnhof is a pretty well preserved historical courtyard. With a good imagination you can see how people have lift for centuries, once you step through the gates. If you like walking around cities and discover places, Begijnhof is one of such place. Lover of...More
