Once upon a time, Herkenrode used to be the richest convent of the Netherlands. Today, the historic buildings have been beautifully restored.

The Experience Center will immerse you entirely in the history of this unique site. But the Abbey site of Herkenrode is much more than just history.

It is also a 100-ha oasis of peace in a splendid nature reserve. Around the abbey buildings, trails will lead you to the Wijers with its 1001 ponds.

In the Herb and Inspiration garden, you become one with nature.
