Silent Garden Archiepiscopal Palace

A green lung right in the heart of the city. There are several already, but from April 1st you will also be able to enjoy the tranquillity of the Silent Garden at the Archiepiscopal Palace. This green space located between the Wollemarkt and Schoutetstraat will be open three days a week. Take a stroll in the garden and admire the sheds, the Lourdes grottoes, the pavilion but also the garden wall itself, all of which have just been restored.   

With the emphasis on silence, this little oasis right under St Rumbold’s Tower is just the place to switch off the technology and unwind.

Saturdays and Sundays: from 9 to 19.00 hrs
Wednesday afternoons: from 13 to 19.00 hrs

October 1st - March 31st:
