Abbaye de Maredsous, Denee

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • What a nice discovery, the Belgian country side. The abbey is amazing, let's of space for children. The surrounding villages cute and well kept. Great possibility for cycling on the ravel
  • 30min drive from Dinant. It’s got a visitor area with ice-cream, 4 kinds beer, only two kinds of the cheese on display are from here. Bread and sausages also available. Bit of a tourist trap. The church is surprisingly active and with karaoke display, lots of activities.
