The Secret Garden at Begijnhof
Escape the bustle of the city by ducking into the quiet courtyard garden of Begijnhof. Located just a few minutes’ walk from the Koningsplein and the Singel canal, this quiet oasis dates to the 14th century. Look among the row houses around the perimeter to find the city’s oldest home, Het Houten Huis, built in 1420. And within the courtyard is the Engelse Kerk, or English Church, first built in 1390 and reconstructed after a fire 100 years later.
