Very beautiful exterior...the money from beer sales are clearly showing with the expansion that is in place. You can step inside during certain hours of the day but no photography and you must remain very quiet and respectful. there’s not much else you can do but it is pretty. I wouldn’t consider this place ratable because they abbey does not server beer, only sells it.

Hard to rate, but there really isnt much to see here. A long line of cars with the lucky people picking up the beers that they have been allocated after caliing in. A huge 3 meter high wall round the monastery, making it impossible to see anything. Not a monk, or a beer in sight. A small track around the monastery makes it possible to walk around it, with the other tourists, and have a look at the walls from the other side. On the other hand, they sell the best beer in the world at dirt cheap prices. Dont think ill be back

I was visiting the surrounding area and I had to get the Westvleteren beer. So I phoned a few times until I was sure to get the Westvleteren XII. At the place the service was efficient and quickly. We tried to go to the reception center but we were short of time and there was too many people. But we shall be back.

A pilgrimage for any true beer lover. I had a one day window to pick up some of the famous beer on a day trip to Belgium. Luckily when the calendar came up for that week they were selling westy 12 on the Monday I was going. Now I just had to get through on the phone line. Didn’t manage it on the first day but got through on the second day of booking. On arriving at the Monastery I was surprised how in the middle of nowhere it was. There’s a modern cafe to drink the beers and buy whatever 6 packs they have available as well as the cheese they produce. Overall the pick up was very efficient and impressive so now I’ve done it, I’d definitely do it again. Website was a the hardest thing to figure out when to call to book.

The monastery itself doesn’t offer much to the beerlover unless you are lucky enough to manage to call ahead and book a crate or two. A beautiful monastery where you can stand outside and look at the wall. Still worth it just for being close to such a legendary beer place. Walked around and found a small shrine in the woods just north of the main buildings. In the Vrede can have bottles for sale and is a easier place to pick up a few Westys then the monestary itself.

Diseño moderno. Con una tienda de recuerdos a la entrada. La cerveza que sirven la 6, 8 y la 12 son de reciente embotellado y aún no están maduras. La única que se sirve bien es la 6. Para comer tienes pâtés y queso. Tienen una agradable terraza que si no llueve se puede disfrutar. Hecho para turistas

Deep in the Flemish rural land lies the famous abbey of St. Sixtus. The place looks to modern, but the beers are great of course. The food is nice as well, especiialy the Hommelpaptaart.

The only place to get the world famous Westvleteren. Hard to order via the phone booking. Service at pick-up was good.

The only place to get the best beer in the world, direct from the source. Some six packs available in the gift shop, and glassware gift packs.
