Secret gardens in Belgium

1) Baggaertshof

This modest almshouse is hidden in the centre of Kortrijk near the K shopping centre. It isn’t always open, so seize the chance if the little door is unlocked. You enter a quiet complex of 13 small whitewashed almshouses built in 1638 for ‘unmarried women of unblemished character’. The beautiful overgrown apothecary garden is planted with mediaeval medicinal herbs and a lovely mulberry tree. The tiny almshouses around the garden have been turned into a children’s play village.
