Exact what we expect!

Is everything you can wish from a Trappist brewery, good beer and food too. Monastery can only be visited by organized groups, but the gift shop is a must.

The atmosphere at the terras of the "proeflokaal" is great, good collection of nice La Trappe beer. The toor is very interesting, nice look inside the brewery. Group size could be smaller (max 40 prs).

This place is really nice to visit for having a quiet seating with some good Trappist beer. It can be busy, but you always find seating. If you like the outdoors then absolutely a yes. We had some mini croquettes (Dutch: bitterballen) and a cheese plate, both very nice; the cheese plate was really nice presented. If you have 2... More

We continue to visit La Trappe. It is always high on the list of places to bring guests for a delicious lunch and to sample some Trappist beers. La Trappe is one of 10 Trappist breweries in the world, and though I have only been to a handful of these breweries, I believe it has one of the better proeflokaals... More

Book the tour ahead of time! The tour comes with a pint of beer. A great explanation of the process, a short video and walk. As like every other abbaye, you can not actually go into the monastery. The tour into the old bakery, bottling rooms, and tan room was great! Yummy yummy food at the restaurant too!!

Great visit! Here you can visit the restaurant, Tasting room, with the unbelievable La Trappe beers and delicious food! At least when I visit them, at 2pm is possible to attend a tour through the brewery and drink a beer at your choice. Really great, worth a visit!

We finally made it to the brewery after our 4th trip to the Netherlands (my family lives there). It was so worth the wait! The food was absolutely delicious! My husband and I ordered the salad and it had to be the best salad we ever had! The greens were so fresh. The Bleu cheese crumbles were from cheese they... More

A beautiful setting and good food to be enjoyed by all... but as one of only ten or so actual Trappist-run breweries in the world, a special treat for enthusiasts. If you've ever wondered about the connection between meditation and reflection, Trappist monks, and exquisite ales, you'll wonder no more after you've sampled La Trappe's fine products and strolled the...
