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 www.pietersbar.be
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.
