Located in Himmerod village this is just a quick 20 minute drive from Spangdahlem AFB. DO NOT forget your camera for this outing folks. The architecture is gorgeous here.
We went on a cloudy afternoon during a weekday this summer and it was great!
The kids got to walk around and run in a few fields as well as play on a small play area on the grounds.
My kiddos (6 and 4 years old) had a blast looking around and as long as little ones mind their P's and Q's and don't run around screaming...it is a working monastery after all, they are welcome to explore the grounds.
|There is a small little store that sells religious items such as rosaries and such, but they also sell wine, honey, jams, greeting cards, ice cream etc. Its worth looking around.|
There is also a restaurant on the grounds (which we did not visit) that looked very nice and also a hostel. They have fruit trees and bee houses too that you can look at. Throughout the property they have little signs telling facts about the property.
