The Abbey and surrounding area make for a great bike trip out of Leuven. Combine this with a visit to the nearby provinciaal domein kessel-lo. There is also a network of bike trails in the surrounding area which take you through a mixture of fields and suburbs. Grab a beer at the Abbey and relax a bit. :-)

Beautiful white church (surely in summertime) . There is a small pub right in front. Continuous restauration guaranties that the good state will be preserved.

The abbey is not very big but quiet charming. There is a very nice café next to it. They serve real Flemish snacks.

The former abbey buildings are now used for other purposes; for instance by the local primary school and boy scouts. However the old farm is still in use. And more interestingly: another old building now contains a cosy... More
