Don't make a detour only for the Baggaertshof but if you visit Kortrijk, you have to vist also the Baggaertshof. Very small but a little place of quietness in the centre of the town. So you can feel that Kortrijk has really mediaval roots.

Baggaertshof is sweet and small. This herbal garden has a small koi pond and a chapel twice its size and they ooze love. Image someone weeding this and feeding the kois. Beautiful, even in autumn.
