“Historical”
Review of Groot Begijnhof

Groot Begijnhof
Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you want to visit a world heritage site that is devoid of tourists, come here.

Stroll the cobblestone streets, and take a break in the garden or near the river. This walled fortress now houses students in this university town.

Not much else to see other than history, but that's the good thing - no souvenir places or cafes to spoil the beauty of the place.

This is a world heritage site, the size of a small village. The buildings have been beautifully restored, and now provide accommodation for international academics and students visiting the university. There are lovely small garden areas with seating, and the site is interspersed with the river and its tributaries. A lovely place to wander through on a fine day.

Beautiful part of Leuven, now a place where students live. The water, the old houses and the old church in the middle of the Begijnhof make it an very beautiful place to visit. Absolutely recommendable
