If you need a break from hectic urban landscape just walk a few extra meters to the peaceful courtyard of De Prinsentuin, best translated as the Prince’s Garden. As the name suggests, this is not an ordinary courtyard. The Renaissance-style garden built in 1626 consists of a rose garden, an herb garden and a sundial dating back to 1731. Translate the Latin phrase with your mobile device and you might just enjoy life even a bit more than you did before. On one side of this secluded oasis is a giant wall (which was once taller still). When the French ruled this part of the world, the wall was designed to prevent people from throwing alcoholic beverages to their friends who were patients at the military hospital. Yes, truth is stranger than fiction. These days you can just order a drink at the lovely tea house.
