Our guided tours

The Abbey of Maredsous organizes guided tours in French and in Dutch.

Our guided tours last approximately 1h30 in total.

The small cheese factory museum

A fragile microbial ecosystem has settled down in our caves. That is why visitors are not allowed to visit the cheese factory.
We have opened this small cheese factory museum in May 2016 in order to show you a part of our story and of our caves but also to explain how the maturing of the cheese works.

This place will delight cheese lovers.
