    The pea soup is really good. If she could be a bit spicier, but Maggi is on the table.
    Contrary to all rumors, the restaurant and the monastery shop will be continued after the closure of the monastery:

    The visit is worth it alone because of the great pea soup, but also the other dishes are tasty. Let's hope that after announcement of the closure of the monastery here somehow continues.

    The restaurant will continue to operate after the dissolution of the monastery by a club.

    Good, simple food in a rustic atmosphere. There are many "Trappist" specialties, such as cheese or beer.

    If you are traveling in the Eifel National Park and visiting the Mariawald Abbey, you should definitely enjoy a bowl of the legendary pea soup and a cool Trappist beer in the monastery restaurant. Delicious!!

    The Mariawald Abbey is located in the North Eifel in the Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park and is surrounded by the Eifel National Park. It is a place of centuries-old tradition where you can find peace and quiet.
    But Mariawald is also a place ...

    contemplation and prayer (e.g. in the former monastery church)

    resting and strengthening (e.g. in the monastery restaurant)

    for new experiences (e.g. in the bookstore)

    immersion in medieval history (e.g. on a monastery tour)

    Together with the monastery probably also the restaurant will be closed during the year 2018. Until there is a new plan, all hikers and cyclists must renounce their beloved pea soup and the famous Trappist beer.
