Description

Exceptional listed Walloon heritage, the Villers-la-Ville Cistercian Abbey is remarkably preserved since the 12th century!

Explore its new reception-shop area with a wide choice of local products, its interpretive centre and its new tour itinerary. Get a panoramic 180° view of all the Abbey. And immerse yourself in the past with the Ardoise, the interactive augmented reality tablet! At each of the 20 stations on your itinerary you can access a variety of scripted multimedia content. Augmented reality breathes life back into the architectural features and to people now dead.

The Abbey has 5 gardens of very different styles. The Jarden des Simples of Medieval inspiration and the Jardin des Moines have medicinal plants from yesteryear and today. The Jardin de la Pharmacie and the Jardin de l'Abbé are two ornamental gardens. The fifth Abbey Garden touches the senses and the olfactory one in particular.

Also visit the micro-brewery and try the house-made beers. The micro-brewery opens its doors every 2nd Saturday of the month at 2pm, 3pm and 5pm for a 45-minute guided tour.

Pass through the vineyard on a guided tour (1hr30) every 1st Saturday in September at 14.30 and finish with a tasting.

With the family of friends, explore Villers-la-Ville Abbey, its architecture, its history, its gardens and its animals!

The Abbey launches two annual subscription packages (unlimited access to the Abbey for one year as of the date of purchase. These subscription packages save their holders money from their second visit on):
- The Personal Pass
- The Family Pass.
