Visit

The St Bavo’s site is both unique and vulnerable. That is why the abbey ruins show off their charms for only a few days a week from April to November.

Practical info

St Bavo’s Abbey is open from April to November on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 2.00 to 6.00 p.m.
On Sunday afternoons, the Abbey neighbours are responsible for the reception.

Attention: due to the announced stormy weather, the abbey will be closed on Sunday 29 September.
