  • The Abbey of Villers absolutely worth a visit. The site was very well developed for visitors who discover the part Museum (with model of the Abbey and interactive room) first and then the ruins of the Abbey. A place imprint of magic and serenity. The play of light through the stone you éblouirons... Do family.

  • Wonderful show (as every year) in an equally beautiful setting! The place is to see both the day and night! So if you get the chance, feel free to experiment.

  • Ruins of XIII century abbey, abandoned some 200 years ago. Entrance through nearby building. Overpriced (8€ entry fee), but free parking for visitors. Not pram-friendly, but a couple of lifts do exist. Beautiful sights and interesting gardens with medicinal plants. We saw a couple shooting wedding pics.
  • I had high expectations but was still blown away by this historic beauty! A very interesting and absolutely magnificent place that I heartily recommend. We visited on a weekday and I advise you to do the same, you will avoid so many crowds.
  • This place is stellar! There is an entrance cost, which has to be paid. To reach the site, you will have to walk a littlebit. Beware, there are places where wheelchair might not be accessible. The ruins of the monastery are beautiful for photography. Try the beer at cafe!
  • Superb site, well conserved and worth thee short detour...A lot to be learned about European history and the Cistercian monks of France and Belgium.
  • Huge and wonderful ruins of an old abbey. A beautiful heritage!
