The old abbey is located partly on Dutch territory and partly on Belgian territory. Known of the beer of same name ‘Achel’ which has been brewed in its own home brewery since 1998.
The abbey’s gatehouse has been given a new tourist use, namely a visitor centre. An Inspiration Point where visitors everything get to know about the history and present of the abbey. You will also find inspiration about exploring of the region. After a visit of the Achelse Kluis you are ready to discover the spacious natural area of fields, forests and heathland.
The ultimate place for nature lovers, heritage fans and beer connoisseurs!
