7/1/14 and 3/8/03 visits A few weeks before the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the price of airline tickets to Europe plummeted and we flew nonstop from MSP to Amsterdam for a long weekend because it was cheaper than any domestic vacation we tried to book. One of the best trips we've ever taken, a highlight was a train... More

We went here on public transportation from The Hague. When we arrived at Tilburg, the bus to the abbey/brewery was just pulling out. The next one was not scheduled for another hour. We priced the taxi and were quoted 15 euros. We jumped in and arrived at the brewery not too much later. This place is beautiful and peaceful with... More

I am not a beer drinker...I almost never drink. This is the best beer I have ever had in my entire life. I thought it was delicious and I detest most beers. It was so smooth with no aftertaste. The Monastery and the gardens are also super beautiful so there is much to enjoy.

We had a nice company visit with a tour and a beer tasting of 8 Trappist beers, all of them brewed at this location. Tour was nice but not sensational, but the enthusiasm of the guide made it quite amusing. Wonderful location though with a very nice terrace and even a shop where you can buy all the stuff they...

We often visit this place. The beer, the terrace the environment and the special shop make this a special place to be. In the shop you can buy religious articles and special beer. Also you can make a guide tour in the brewery. So visit this place!

Very much enjoyed the generous sample of beer included in the €10 entrance fee, although I believe they do a more expensive ticket where you can sample all the beers, which may have been preferable. Anyway, the video they show whilst you have your sample was informative and had English subtitles. Unfortunately, the rest of the tour was solely on... More

This was our second time visiting here, the first time we came there was 3 of us and we got the tour with a male. Hilarious tour, spoke in English for the many English speaking visitors. Most fun tour I have ever done in the Netherlands. 2nd time we took another couple that was visiting us. As you can imagine... More

Very worthwhile to spend some time, and especially do some tasting. A truly educating and entertaining experience... Especially in summer when you can enjoy the produce in the beer garden after the educational part of your visit; I'd say a must go if you have some time to spend in the Tilburg area...

This tour is a must for every beer lover. We had a great day also thanks to the fantastic guide Ton a former bar tender who knows the trade and adds interesting anecdotes. The tour must be booked in advance as the number of participants is limited. It will take about two hours and provides you a unforgettable memory and... More

The weather was good and I had heard that this was a nice place to go for a drink and spend a quiet afternoon with your partner. We were not disappointed. There was a nice 'family feel' to the place and it obviously was a local Dutch attraction- not to be missed in my view.
