If you walk towards the Dom from Utrecht Central Station, you will cross Mariaplaats square. This is where the impressive Mariakerk church stood until the nineteenth century. Its space is now occupied by the conservatory, and the remains of Pandhof van Sinte Marie bear silent witness to where the church once stood.

Herbs and flowers

The old Pandhof court consists of the ruins of the eleventh-century covered hall that ran from the Mariakerk to the monks’ meeting hall. Today you will find a beautiful herb and flower garden at its centre.

Special names

These plants often have appropriate names like honesty (‘Judas coin’ in Dutch), lady’s thumb (‘Jesus grass’ in Dutch) and a large collection of Maria plants.  Volunteers ensure that the many local and medicinal plants flourish and bloom in this oldest monastery hall in Holland.
