This begijnhof is located in the town centre, entering through a gate off one of the main streets. The gate can easily be missed. It is of the square type, meaning that all the houses lie around 1 very large square, which does host the...More

This museum is an ancient monestary and tells a lot about the history around it. It's very intersting for people who believe or want to know more about the religion in the area in the formal century. When visiting Dendermonde, a place you should visit

This beguinage looks a bit dilapidated. That has a certain charm, but for the longer term I think they should restore or clean some things here. There's a small church/chapel in the center, with a bench. I didn't notice any other special buildings. It looked...More

It is one of the most beautiful begijnhofs of Belgium. It is a UNESCO heritage site. Most beautiful in spring when the crocuses are blooming or during fall foliage.

English: Walk through the gate and a small alley brings you to the beguinage. The small houses are built around a green meadow with a chapel surrounded by trees. Very lovely to visit on a summer day. On one side the houses are painted white,...More

This hidden place is one of the few remaining places that wasn't destroyed in Dendermonde by the German troups during WW1 because apparantly their horses were stalled here, is worth visiting, even though it needs further restauration. It is a quiet, open space with all...More

We stumbled upon the Begijnhof when we walked along the Brusselse Straat. It was a little oasis of lovely quaint old houses around a green courtyard, with a nice little church in the middle and a whole collection of amazing outdoor artwork. Definitely worth a...More
