The Maredsous Abbey is a superb Neo-Gothic building, founded in 1872 by the monks of the Benedictine order. The beautiful surrounding Molignée-valley makes for an inviting hiking location.
The monks of the Maredsous Abbey give everyone a warm welcome and explain their way of life and their spirituality. They are a link between tradition and the modern world. Take advantage of the peaceful environment to recharge your batteries, tour the abbey, enjoy a family day out or try the abbey's gastronomic specialties: beer and cheese.
