  • This is said to be the oldest Hofje in The Netherlands. Hours vary, but If you see one that is open, take a few minutes to step inside the gate and admire the gardens.

  • These traditional areas are worth a look if you can gain access - they are not all open to the public all the time. They are tranquil and pretty - an oasis in the heart of the town

  • Cute courtyard originally from the twelfth century. Enter via one the doors from the alleys. It's very peaceful. Just remember people live there.
  • Lovingly designed garden idyll; Please make sure during the visit that it is a private area, which the residents open for guests.
