Anderlecht Beguinage

After several months’ closure and before its brand-new museum project is inaugurated in autumn 2023, the Anderlecht beguinage is letting the public slip in for a few events in 2022. These exceptional opening days will enable everyone to discover this entirely restored architectural jewel in a pristine state.  

The Beguinage of Anderlecht is the smallest beguinage in Belgium. It was founded in 1252 and today consists of two wings framing an enclosed garden with its own well. It took in beguines (women in a secular religious community) until the French Revolution and then served as a hospice and housing for indigent women until it closed in 1928.

The beguinage has been restored in depth and is once again open to visitors! A new museum project is currently in the pipeline and will be finalised in autumn 2023.
