Abbaye de Maredsous, Denee
(3.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Abbaye de Maredsous represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Denee vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Very touristy. Guided tour done with female guide who translated at the beginning reluctantly to NL. The drive is mainly to the outside of the Abbey. All in all, it fell with it.

  • 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
  • A gorgeous abbey with great food, delicious beer and cheese made on site . The guided tours are definitely not to be missed.
  • Delicious beer, cheese on a board, ice cream, and gorgeous, well-kept grounds. Highly worth the stop, though we got a bit lost trying to find our way.
  • Really nice grounds a buildings. Food was great too.
