Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk
This Church of Our Lady has the highest tower in the city (122 meters). The sculpture of "Madonna and Child" is made by Michelangelo, originally intended for the Sienna Cathedral.
Originally founded in 1245 as the living place for the beguines: women devoted their lives to God, stayed single but were not nuns. Beautiful little white houses are set out around a huge lawn planted with high trees.
The Minnewater (the Lake of Love)
It's a beautiful small lake with white swans and other water birds, surrounded by a park. This is a very quiet part of the city. So take a walk here (around the Begijnenvest for instance).
