Great spot for some history

Not quite nuns; not quite regular citizens this is the collection of homes of Christian lay women and a museum dedicated to their lives. In the case of this museum, some of the buildings represent functional buildings, one is the brewery and a small part of the bakery are working - enjoy the beer and bread.

Relatively small but beautiful museum with state of the art multimedia experience. Entertaining and instructive. After having learned about the history of Tongeren and its cathedral, enjoy the calm and the beauty of the cloister.

Small, but worth a visit, especially when you have an excellent guide like we did !

Very nice beguinage, small but wonderfully rebuild.
The museum is also small but gives a good impression of the life that was lived in the clerical community.
Try to have a guide with you, in and outside, she really made everything come to life !

Get a feel of living in a 'begijnhof'

The beguinage of Tongeren is big, you can easily stroll around for about an hour. The signs with information are good, but if you want to know even more about how life once was, you can visit the museum.

I really loved the tavern in the basement of this old house. In the attic they show a video of different beguinages in Belgium. You can also make reservations for a guided tour.
For me, to learn about the former dwellers of this house was most interesting, but there's also overall information about beguinages and the history of this beguinage in particular.
