Zundert Things to Do: 6 reviews and 8 photos

 
 

The ‘Maria Toevlucht’ (=Maria Refuge) monastery has been founded in 1900 as a refuge for the French monks who were threatened with expulsion from France.
Indeed, the monks from the trappist monastery Monts des Kats (Mount of the Cats) initially founded the abbey Koningshoeven in Tilburg (in 1881) and from there this one.
In 1938, the priory of Zundert was elevated to an abbey.

Unfortunately not every trappist abbey are producing beer; this one is simply living from ecological farming.
