Beguinage site guided tour

Beguinage site

Led by a guide, you have the chance to walk in the footsteps of the beguines. During a guided tour, you walk through the atmospheric Beguinage and stop at the 17th century church, infirmary, convents and houses. When you witness all these beautiful scenes, you will not be surprised that the Beguinage of Turnhout is part of the 13 beguinages added to the UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage List in 1998.

To complete the tour, you also enter the Beguinage Museum.

A visit to the Beguinage site takes 2 hours.

How does it work?

Book a guided tour of the Beguinage site at least three weeks in advance via Toerisme & UiT. With your reservation, indicate:

  • the desired date
  • the time of the visit
  • the size of your group (maximum 20 people per guide)
  • contact details

The cost per guide is 50 euros, the entrance fee is 3 euros per person (Beguinage Museum free under 18 years). A one-off administration fee of 5 euros will also be charged.

Toerisme & UiT secures the guide(s) and provides you with a reservation confirmation for the visit. Afterwards you will receive an invoice for the payment of the guide and the administration fee. Then you and your group go to the Beguinage for the guided tour on the agreed day and time. You pay the entrance fee on location.

In case of cancellation, you must inform Toerisme & UiT in writing at least six calendar days in advance. In the case of late cancellations, you pay the total amount and no cancellation restitution is possible.
