This monestary cannot be judged as a tourist attraction, since it is not. It is a very serene, quiet, sacred place. We talked briefly with a friendly munk who was very much at peace. It is awe inspiring that people still choose this road...

This must be one of the most ultramodern churches ever. However, it is only the church which is modern, the rest of the abbey is much older. I'm not a 'church' person myself but even I found the atmosphere somewhat forbidding and cold. It is situated on a main road but the entrance is a bit concealed and easily missed.

The Abbey of Saint Beneductus near Mamelis is build in 1923,a nd designed by the architect Dominicus Boehm. It is a peacefull and quiet place, where one can enjoy the ‘singing in the silence’ of the monchs, the Gregorian chant. It is situated near a forest where one can walk and reflect. I have been here several times, and it always boosts my energy, and reduces any stress level. The monchs are very polite. The food is good and tasty, and on Sundays one even gets a bottle of beer (as the monchs) during the meal. The church in which the Gregorian chants are sung is designed by Dom Hans van de Laan, who became very famous with this architectural style. He went back to the essence of a building, which led to a sober, but very functional church.
