't Klooster is a hamlet in the municipality of Aalten, near Bredevoort (Achterhoek region) in the eastern Netherlands.

't Klooster is not a statistical entity,[2] and the postal authorities have placed it under Aalten.[3]

Klooster is a Dutch word for "monastery". In the fifteenth century, what is now 't Klooster was home to a monastery named "Nazareth" or "Schaer" devoted to the Devotio Moderna. In addition, in 2005, a bronze statue was revealed, designed by artist Jan te Kulve, which shows an inhabitant of the former monastery wearing the outfit of his order.[4] In 1975, the name 't Klooster first appeared for the hamlet.[5] It has no place name signs, and consists of about 40 houses.[4]
