In search of a unique romantic break? For one day, plunge into the past and discover the enchanting setting of the Lady with the Rose Hospital.


The Lady with the Rose Hospital is a unique, original and lively place, which became a landmark of Walloon heritage. The spirit of this old building will certainly not leave you indifferent!

A combination of history

A wonderful proof of love started the hospital's history. In 1242, Alix de Rosoit founded this institution in memory of the recent tragic death of her husband. It was to be devoted to charity and love of neighbour. Over the centuries, nuns have dedicated their life to the service of the poor.


Today you can discover the hospital's treasures thanks to:


  • A discovery journey through 20 rooms, each sharing the everyday life of the sisters and of the patients during the Middle Ages to nowadays
  • The pharmacy
  • Two wards

And not forgetting the beautiful scenery at the hospital!

Immerse yourself in the magnificent setting of the hospital, at the hear of the forgotten medieval village. Wander around the Jardin des simples of a thousand scents.

And to round off this enchanting day, take advantage of the restaurant and the sunny terrace.

Opening times: Tuesday - Sunday from 2-6pm. Closed on Mondays.
