Calm and relaxing place to walk around. It also looks like that the atmosphere had been same during medieval times, like everyone lived here in peace. A cool, relaxed neighborhood 😇

Lovely place with a tiny and free interactive museum. Great for kids to run around freely.
There is also a cosy and quality restaurant/bar.

Beautiful beguinage with a small but nice (free) museum. You need to visit it if you go to kortrijk.

A must see if you're visiting on foot. Very cosy, almost fairytale-like.

This is a magical place! Walking around the houses in those narrow streets really takes you back in time. The place is well kept, and it feels like an open-air museum. If you have time for one thing in Courtrai, this is it!

Beautiful beguinage. Nice cafe inside with variety of fancy teas and snacks.
Can see how one of the houses was historically decorated, can visit the chapel/church and there is a free interactive exhibit on beguinage heritage.

Very pretty, historic part of Kortrijk.
Even some eateries tucked away in cosy corners.

One of the most beautiful beguinages of Belgium. It's quite small in relation to others, but very well maintained.

Being with local is always fun and more informative, all the more when you are visiting a city in Belgium which is relatively not a touristic city and on radar of international travellers. Well I was touring Kortrijk in a business tour along with my local contact. Due to cancelled meeting had some free time to go around Kortrijk. Beguinage being one of the oldest living structure is of special reference. This used to be a place where war widows and women who wanted to lead a life without a partner lived. It is nicely built with similar villas all around a Courtyard. The women occupants of beguinage were supposed to live a religious lifestyle and often involved in activities to support their living. Now a days there is a cafe, art gallery and a museum on site. Renovations were going on at the time of visit.
