Well, You can't get in to SEE the abbey. Or the Beer Making Process. You can park at the SHOP/MUSEUM and take a wooded path to the abbey, which was nice enough. But once you get there, you can't see much of anything and can't...More

Lovely grounds. It is a short, but nice, walk from the Escape Chimay. The garden is lovely and you can admire the building from the exterior. The garden and the cemetery are the only parts you can really enter though. It is worth the walk...More

Founded in the 19th century, the abbey is still thriving, not the least because of the famous Chimay beer brewed here (and sold nearby in the Espace Chimay). There are many reasons to stop here. The area is lovely, rural, green and pretty. The moment...More

This is a pleasant, quiet retreat that you can visit. You can view the abbey courtyard and stroll through the woods in front, but you can't actually explore the abbey or brewery.

This is a closed monk congregation, and for that reason, you cannot visit the monasterium, nor the brewery. But it is a very quite place worthwhile to visit. You can visit the church and walk through the nice and well maintained garden with chapel and...More

Well, I'm sure we are all familiar with the new fad known as craft beers. Well, I don't mean to be a bit of a party pooper but the Belgiums, in fact the trappist monks, have been doing that type of thing for centuries, and...More

Do you like beer? Do you like catholicism? Do you like the Church? If you say yes to just one of these you should visit this magnificent place. I have spend long weekends regularly over the last seven year.

A bit tricky to find it because the road signage was covered by the lush vegetation but once parked the car we understood how isolated but at the same time self sufficient is this place. You can visit the park and the church of the...More

There is a lovely walk through the woods to get to the Abbey and its gardens, but it is a shame you can not see the brewery.
