Abbaye de Maredsous, Denee

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.

  • During our recent visits we noticed a lack of cleanliness in addition in most flagrant. The tables are more cleared! The ground is really fat. Nobody cleans the tables. Really disappointed! It becomes a tourist factory. Really too bad.

  • Very nice place but busy. Try the locally made 'tartine au fromage de Maredsous if you are hungry. Place is a well known stop for bikers.
  • while their beer may be good it is more expensive here than a bar or food store. the breads and cheeses are more expensive here than at the food store. this is kind of a tourist trap. you can see from the receipt the cost of a pizza, soda and two coffees.
  • Epic Abbey. Epis view. Great place.
  • Good place for tasting the beers and cheeses made by the monks. The visit inside the abbey is not recommended if you think you are going to see their brewery. Only how monks live. Visits are not in English.
  • Nice place with good food offer, very crowded during weekends and holidays
