Fodor's Expert Review Begijnhof

The Meir, Diamantwijk, and Centraal Station Religious Building/Site/Shrine

This béguinage–-a community of women who dedicated themselves to religious duties without taking any vows–-dates from the 13th century, but by the 1960s there was only one beguine left. Redbrick buildings surrounding a courtyard garden give a sense of tranquility as you stroll the roughly cobbled walk. The building is a little difficult to find, but your efforts will be rewarded with serene surroundings and charming houses, which you can only view from the outside.
