I think it is a must-see in Bruges for the historical relevance as well as the serene quiet in the middle of a bustling tourist city

Loved the gardens and general sense of peace. Swans floating in the outer pond present fair warning of a calm and peaceful place within the beguinage walls. A lovely respite for the congested tourist streets of brugge.

This was a small walled community inhabited by nuns within the city of Brugges. A peaceful place, apart from all the tourists!

Interesting to see how women lived and now live in this city within a city. A surprising island of quiet and peace in a city that is overflowing with tourists. Interesting to read about the history of this settlement of women only.

It was very pleasant to escape (some) of the crowds and to look around this ancient area which has had a religious purpose for 700 or so years. A place for calm and reflection. Worth a visit
