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.

  • Maredsous was a big suprise for me due to their pragmatic aproach vs the visitors. There are 2 different parts /direction. 1. For beer fans and families : a dedicated area with restaurant , beer chees...  more »
  • Very cozy to go to dinner with the family. There is a children's play area and you can visit the Abbey where they make cheese.

  • We stayed in this monastery during the RV trip of Belgium, attracted by beer that is produced. We found a quiet loner full of peace so much from having slept the night at 10 in the morning opens the Café shop inside where you can buy beers, cheese and taste at the bar beers brewed. They are delicious.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful abbey, nice food.
