I live for almost 50 years in Belgium and never made it to this place. However, I drink their beer and eat their cheese for years. This weekend I went with friends to Maredsous. It was a sunny summer day. The beer tasting was a...More

We came for beer and lunch. The Maredsous salad was described as having pink lady apple, sun dried tomatoes and Maredsous cheese. Ours had none of this- wilted soggy lettuce, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and tough grilled chicken. The service was very slow and not...More

Maredsous was a big suprise for me due to their pragmatic aproach vs the visitors. There are 2 different parts /direction. 1. For beer fans and families : a dedicated area with restaurant , beer cheese bread shop , cafeteria and big children playground. Basicaly...More

BRING A TRANSLATOR!!! The tour is only done in French and Dutch, so you will need to go with a friend or partner who can speak one of those. Apart from that its a good day trip with some delicious beer tasting at the end....More

Beautiful grounds with a nice restaurant attached. Unfortunately the tour of the place is given only in French and Dutch so if you speak only English you're out of luck. Our family did the tour anyways cause we figured we'd at least get to see...More

No, entry is free, you can walk the grounds and look around but the main draw is the beer- so bring $$ for that!
