Herkenrode Abbey Site
The Herkenrode Abbey Site has a rich history. There are so many fascinating stories to be discovered. Would you like to learn more about the women who lived in the abbey for 600 years? Immerse yourself in the Experience Centre and learn about both the boom times – filled with opulence, splendour, and glory – and the difficult times – filled with war, disease, and violence. Are you more curious about the Herb and Inspiration Garden? A guide will be happy to explain the design of the herb park and outline how different peoples and cultures have used herbs all throughout time.
Smaakmaker: Fancy a different kind of tour, one filled with humour and anecdotes? Go on a journey with Joséphine de Gondrécourt, the last abbess of Herkenrode!
