Welcome to Val-Dieu Abbey

Founded in 1216 by Cistercian monks, the abbey Notre-Dame du Val-Dieu is a heaven of peace in the heart of the land of Herve. It is situated in the centre of the Liège-Maastricht-Aachen triangle.
Since the departure of the monks in 2001, the abbey undergoes a revival thanks to the “Christian Community of Val-Dieu”.
