Garden of Hof van Busleyden Museum

The Hof van Busleyden was the sixteenth-century home of Hiëronymus van Busleyden, a humanist and good friend of Erasmus of Rotterdam. All but the walls of the building was destroyed during the First World War. Later on it was rebuilt and became the city museum. Hof van Busleyden is the oldest Renaissance building in the city.The recently remodelled former court of honour and garden keep memories of the renaissance seventeenth century alive but give it a contemporary twist. The garden is often used for cultural activities.

TIP: You can combine a visit to this beautiful garden with a visit to the Museum itself.
