This cafe is located on the Abbey premises. Parking is just outside and a few steps away. It is a true pub. Enjoyed some beers and went for the spareribs. Desserts are Big, had a sorbet with 4 scoops. Yummy.

Excellent place to spend the evening of a warm day on a huge terrace in a beautiful and quiet atmosphere. Frequently visited by locals or by others after a bike or walk tours in the region. Pub is known for good spaghetti. Check opening hours.

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. :-)

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

This abbey was founded in 1127 and consists of a nice little church (+ cemetery) and some nice buildings in classicistic style. 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
