Behind the gate at Diek 11a lies an oasis of peace: an idyllic garden containing an ancient convent, which originally dates from 1660. Nowadays, it is a refuge for the arts. The garden is almost too beautiful to just walk through. When the weather is nice, it is an ideal place to rest. The church is home to various artists. Paintings and/or photographs hang on the walls. The atmosphere is unique. Entrance is free. Times: In principle, open daily between 10 am and 6 pm. Sometimes the door is closed because there is a closed group, or because an artist needs to be able to work concentrated.
