De Ruien

Rediscover this hidden heritage now. The underground tunnel system still shows its fascinating and rich history. A visit to De Ruien, with its old vaults, canals, bridges, sewers, and locks, reflects the historic city center above your head, with many interesting facts and mysterious anecdotes from a distant and recent past.

Did you know that the Jesuits largely vaulted De Ruien to make room for the beautiful Sint-Carolus Borromeuskerk on Hendrik Conscienceplein?
