Founded in the nineteenth century by Benedictine monks, Maredsous has a much more distant past. More than a thousand years, in fact.

Situated in the Molignée valley, it is considered one of the most beautiful abbeys in Belgium and offers pilgrims and tourists an architectural ensemble of great beauty.

The monastery emanates a moment of plenitude, a feeling of quietude and absoluteness to which one cannot remain indifferent…

Guided tours in the heart of the building, discovering the exceptional architecture and gardens, time to recharge your batteries in the abbey’s guesthouse, tasting the famous cheeses and beers, etc.: Maredsous is a unique and unmissable place during a stay in this superb region!
