  • Religious heritage

The Maredsous Abbey, in the Molignée valley, is one of the most beautiful ones in Belgium. Make the most of your visit to admire the architecture of the monastery and taste the famous cheese and beer made on site.

Created in 1872 by Benedictine monks and built in a neogothic style, the Maredsous abbey offers pilgrims and visitors a stunning architectural setting.


Why not join one of the tours? Your guide will show you around the abbey, the cemetery, the monks' garden, the ceramics workshop and the cheese dairy (from the outside). You can also learn how the famous cheese is refined at the « Petit Musée de la fromagerie » (the cheese dairy museum).

Strolls and meditation

Enjoy the peacefulness of the site, wander from to the garden and feel the calm all around you...

Tasting time!

Why not stop by the Saint-Joseph cafeteria to conclude your visit, and try some of the terroir products there? You will also find a souvenir shop and a free play area there.
