Small and quiet beguinage a little bit away from the old city centre. There is a small garden in the middle with fruit trees and some sculptures. A nice place to relax for a moment but take care of the people that live there

To be fair it had been a rainy day before, but the garden looked not that well maintained. Pears smashed everywhere and law was very long. The road is difficult to walk on, even in flats. There is a small side walk though. The houses...More

We came here very early in the morning, us being alone and the weather being foggy, we found it a little creepy. I assume it must be nice on a sunny afternoon.

The beguinage in Antwerp is very nice. It has a well-kept garden in the middle, and the houses around look authentic and well maintained. The beguinage church is not very old. There is another church around the corner, which is so close that I think...More

Very special place, I used to come here to enjoy the quiet in my lunch break. The history of the Beguinages is very interesting. It is close to the university (don't forget to see the main building and it's inner garden), so it is a...More

A few minutes here are worth the effort, this is a peaceful haven very close to town. A lovely if a little peculiar set of houses (plus a church) with a beautiful garden in the middle. You can't enter the houses, just the grounds, and...More

I find the concept of the Beguinage so interesting and have enjoyed walking through similar communitites in Amsterdam and Bruges. There is so much to see in Antwerp, but the Beguinage is worthy of a visit.

A nice quiet spot very near the city centre. You can go there and walk around the cute little houses and the tiny park in the middle of them. The church is small but nice, and they organize special events (concerts, theatre plays, etc), so...More

After visiting the Begijnhof in Amsterdam previously I was interested to see this too. It is a little off the beaten track within the university district. It is very quiet and peaceful and must be respected whilst inside. Very beautiful place to visit.
