Lengthy corridors, a courtyard with a well to fire the imagination, and splendid abbey gardens, you can walk around freely there.

If you prefer to delve deeper into history, book one of our guided tours or admire our temporary exhibitions. You can relax later and look for souvenirs in the Pietersbar and shop. Welcome!

COVID-19: Book your tickets online in advance. Please check our house rules before your visit.

Pietersbar: social and local

Our Pietersbar indulges visitors with a delightful and delicious offer and a friendly welcome. Hot soup with bio-bread, spread with bio-cheese or meat. A ‘croque monsieur’ with fresh vegetables, vegetarian or not. A tasty coffee with cake. An ice-cream in summer. You can enjoy them in the historical corridors, on the terrace, or in our south-facing Abbey gardens.  

You will find it all on


Come and have a browse in our small, but fine museum shop. A historical or children’s book, an attractive postcard, an original gadget, or merchandise from our exhibitions. You will certainly find something as a nice souvenir of your visit.
