Abbey and Claustrum
Unfortunately, the abbey and the brewery are not open to the public.
Everyone, though, is welcome to visit the "Claustrum", an information area at the In de Vrede meeting centre. "Claustrum" literally means "the lock, enclosed place", referring to the place where the monks live. In the information area you will learn about life in the abbey and the daily rituals of the Sint-Sixtus monks. On top of that you’ll get an introduction into the history of the brewery and the details of the brewing process, in an interactive way.
