The cafeteria

The outdoor counters and cafeteria terraces are OPEN.

In front of the main entrance, next to our souvenir shop and the bookshop, you will discover our cafeteria. It has various rooms to welcome you alone, with friends, family or with a group.

We have 2 000 places to offer. It will allow you to enjoy a peaceful place apart from any deafening music during a tasting and without any appointment.

The ideal place to drink before or after a guided tour of the Abbey (on Sunday or upon reservation).

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.

The terraces

Our terraces are accessible again!

Maredsous would not be Maredsous without its large terraces. They offer you an optimal sunlight during the whole day.

Near our playground or at the entrance of our welcome center Saint-Joseph you will get the chance to taste a beer and a cheese tartine (slice of bread), as well as one of our many plates cooked on the spot with craft products. Find out about our price list, our menu of the moment and make your choice, we will handle the rest.

This summer, we offer you a covered terrace facing directly south with a floor. This will allow you to take place under cover during the whole week.
