The Convent yard originates in the first half of the 13th century. There were only shelters in the Convent yard since 1554 - the widow house and a shelter of "grey sisters" (nuns). Later besides shelters there were also dwelling houses and warehouses in the Convent yard.

The Convent yard was many times burnt and reconstructed again. In the second half of the 20th century the court yard has come to desolation. Only in 1994 - 1996 there is begun the Convent yard's reconstruction. There is a hotel, a porcelain museum, antique shops and numerous cafes in the Convent yard nowadays. Four inputs (usually closed for the night) conduct you to a Convent yard.
