Voortuin Grootseminarie (Major Seminary Front Garden)
Nature

If the gate on the Potterierei is open, take the opportunity to step inside the Major Seminary garden to admire its imposing facade. You can’t visit the building itself, but the overgrown front garden is well worth the trouble. The Cistercian abbey was built in 1628 and has since been a military hospital, a warehouse and a school. Between 1833 and 2018, Catholic priests were trained here. In short, it’s a front garden with a history.
