This monastery brews the Trappiste monks beer and they really know what their doing after centuries of brewing. The monastery is a MUST-DO and go for the beer and homemade cheese in the gift shop. You won't be disappointed.

Orval Brewery offers a tour through the monastery ruins, very well organized. After taking the tour, you can get beer and souvenirs. A little up the street there is a bar, for some tasting.
