About

The Sint-Janshospitaal (St John’s Hospital) is one of the oldest hospital buildings in Europe. The earliest traces date from the middle of the 12th century. Paintings, sculptures, furniture items, silverwork, and tin items testify to centuries of care for the sick and care for souls in this place. The medieval hospital wards and the accompanying chapel house lots of paintings on panels and on canvases, wooden and stone sculptures, furniture and medical instruments.

There are regular exhibitions of contemporary art.
