Create an itinerary including Abbaye de Maredsous
Sample some of the fine cheeses and beer at Abbaye de Maredsous, a Benedictine monastery. An eatery on site gives you a chance to try the monastery cheese and fresh bread, as well as the beer, which was once made at the monastery and is now produced by a nearby brewery using the same recipe. Stopping for a meal here after a walk around the scenic area is a favorite local pastime, so consider exploring the trails near the monastery and combining it with your short tour and a taste of cheese. Be sure to make a tour reservation if you are passing by the monastery on a weekday, but note that tours are only given in Dutch and French.

  • Beautiful and massive abbey. The church is marvelous, and if you’re lucky enough you can hear the monks sing in the crypt. There is also a restaurant to try Maredsous’ beer and cheese. This is a MUST-SEE in the region, which is by the way full of beautiful landscapes.
  • Beautiful, calm. Would have loved some little cards with explanation on it, with the history and all. But honestly it's fine. It was a rainy day but still enjoyed it. Would have liked to walk in the surroundings. Will come back later to do that!
