In addition to being a magnificent historic building, Stavelot Abbey is an exceptional cultural centre, classified as ‘Outstanding Heritage of Wallonia’. A perfect spot for a day out with the family.
Stavelot Abbey has been magnificently restored and is a site of both culture and heritage. Inside, you will discover a contemporary art gallery and three permanent museums complete with video screens: the Historical Museum of the Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy, the Museum of the poet Guillaume Apollinaire and the Spa-Francorchamps Racetrack Museum.
All kinds of activities
Throughout the year there is a wide variety of temporary exhibitions and events, including concerts and theatre performances. Lots of lovely entertainment for people of all ages in an exceptional location!
Outside, the monastery garden is particularly pleasant for a peaceful stroll. Did you know that this ancient Benedictine monastery was founded in the 7th century by Saint Remacle and most of the current buildings date back to the 18th century.
