Music, art and creativity: that is what De Bijloke stands for today. But did you know that this site used to be a medical center for more than 750 years? Our guide will tell you the exciting stories which the impressive premises hold.
Get a taste of the atmosphere at the time in the restored 13th century hospital wing which now houses a grand concert hall, roam the green courts and gardens and step forward in the digital era of the city museum, housed in an old abbey.
