This is a quiet and peaceful place in the city. It's not that big, but nice to walk through the little cobbled streets. Go back in time ...

We had a nice stroll of about half an hour through the desolate streets of the 'begijnhof'. Time stood still here. You can the feel history.

The Begijnhof is a very evocative place to wander around. It's quiet and prompts some contemplation of old life and old values. It's generally peaceful.

This begijnhof is not one of the most well-preserved in Belgium (in that case I would advice the one in Turnhout). But it sure if lovely because of its battered image. Lots of lovely small streets, old buildings, brick walls and gates. I just love...More

Interesting thought the concept and history of this is, it is undergoing some seemingly very gradual restoration.

A lot of people I know havent heard of where Lier is, and so they are missing on the Begijnhof as well. I love that this part of town is well restored and maintained. It is always a lovely and peaceful walk around the place.

The old town of Lier with its cobbled streets and historic buildings is well worth a visit. Many of the buildings are beautifully preserved and give a real sense of what the town would have been like hundreds of years ago.
