Prinsenhof - Delft

N 52.0121752 / E 4.3552439

This former convent in Delft is named after Saint Agatha, the namesake of daughter Aechte. In 1403, a group of nuns settled in the house and labelled it a convent. In the years that followed, it was continually expanded until it eventually became the largest and richest medieval convent in Delft.

After it was divided in the 16th century, part of the monastery was turned into the court of Prince William of Orange. Since then it has been called the Prinsenhof. On the spot where Balthasar Gerards shot William of Orange you can still see the bullet holes. Especially for visitors of the Prinsenhof, the bullet holes have been made larger.

Museum Prinsenhof is located in the former monastery and can be visited six days a week.
