Gastenverblijf Koningshoeven

  Eindhovenseweg 3, Berkel-Enschot      (+31) 135 40 85 08     more than a year ago

In these hectic times it's great to get some proper rest now and again. One of the most beautiful places in Brabant, the Trappist monastery of Koningshoeven Abbey, is therefore an ideal location to spend the night. Peace reigns supreme in the charming monastery gardens as well as the library. For €40 per day you can catch a glimpse of modern monastic life, although the 18 resident monks live separate from their guests. Two of the three communal meals are eaten in silence, an atmosphere that these clergymen seem perfectly at ease with. Visitors must comply with the house rules, as well as the Golden Rule that nobody may speak after 21:00. The guest quarters include 29 sober one person rooms. If you feel like an even more ecclesiastical experience you can receive the sacrament of penance or have a personal talk with one of the monks.

Although many people consider it to be boring if you tell them your gonna spend some days in a monastery, i thought it was one of my better decisions lately. Besides that the monks are very friendly people it was especially good cause i had some real time to think without being destracted by a mobile phone or internet. I made the decision i wanted to make for a long time just due to the fact that nobody was disturbing me. Also the green surroundings are a big benefit of this awesome place.
