1. Can I visit the Brewery ?
Requests for visiting the brewery are numerous while the place is quite exiguous. Unable to meet every demand, we have decided to refuse them all excepting those coming from professionals of the brewing sector, subject to management approval.
However, the historical part of the Abbey is open to individuals and groups every day of the year. One of the buildings of the site is dedicated to our brewing know-how and will allow you to get a glimpse of the whole production process of Orval beer.
Further information about the historical tour.
Moreover, we organize every year in September Open Door Days on online registration only.
