Abbey - VisitFlanders - Belgian Beer

In the Cistercian and Trappist abbeys, life passes by at a much slower pace: the monks have been following the Rule of Saint Benedict for centuries ‘ora et labora’ (pray and work). They sell traditionally crafted products - among which Trappist beer is the most popular - in order to provide to their own material needs as well as for social works. 

Thanks to the web platform ‘Tastes of Abbeys’, you will enter in another universe, where you can relax and where you can taste and discover the life around Trappist monasteries in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
