In the park you can find 18 different kinds of trees and it is a beautiful area to walk around. At the abbey there is also a cafe restaurant where you can taste the famous Val Dieu beer (... More

Our dad was stationed at this Abbey during the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. The staff was so accommodating to take time to show us around and especially the places where we had photographs of Dad during his stay 70 years ago!

All four of the standard beers are delicious, from Blonde, Brune, Triple and Grand Cru. I highly recommend them all. Their Noel beer... More

I've visited the Val Dieu Abbey a number of times over the past ten years, and it never fails to please me. Well off the beaten track, close to the borders of Belgium, Holland & Germany, this oasis attracts visitors from all over. Food at the cafe attached to the Abbey Cafe is basic but satisfying, whilst top class cuisine... More

This abbey is very interesting to visit. They brew a very tasteful kind of beer and very good cheese. You can take a tour in which they show you the brewery.
