The Begijnhof acts as an active and tranquil Beguinage, where the St Benedictine nuns live together leading a peaceful life and helping out people in need. Also known as the Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde, this world heritage site is blessed with a tree laden garden and daffodil laden lawn during the spring season. Visiting here you will have a clear insight of how the widowed and unmarried women in France used to live in secluded colonies during the 17th century and lived their lives for others. As you enter the courtyard through the 1776’s gate, you will feel like being transformed into another world where only peace and silence prevails. Visit the Begijnhof during afternoon to hear the beguiling sound of the vespers sung by the sisters.
