The city is full of so many beautiful locations to be enjoyed best on foot though you can see it by boat if you wish.

A lovely piece of history in a town already filled to the brim with historic buildings! A beguinage always is just a little more special!

This place looks just like an oil painting. So romantic and it is so close to Grote Markt and Central station.
