Himmerod Abbey

Another short and sweet, yet gorgeous afternoon outing is Himmerod Abbey.
Located in Himmerod village this is just a quick 20 minute drive from Spangdahlem AFB.  DO NOT forget your camera for this outing folks.  The architecture is gorgeous here.

We went on a cloudy afternoon during a weekday this summer and it was great!
The kids got to walk around and run in a few fields as well as play on a small play area on the grounds. 

My kiddos (6 and 4 years old) had a blast looking around and as long as little ones mind their P's and Q's and don't run around screaming...it is a working monastery after all, they are welcome to explore the grounds.  


There is a small little store that sells religious items such as rosaries and such, but they also sell wine, honey, jams, greeting cards, ice cream etc.  Its worth looking around. 

There is also a restaurant on the grounds (which we did not visit) that looked very nice and also a hostel.  They have fruit trees and bee houses too that you can look at. Throughout the property they have little signs telling facts about the property.

The address is: Himmerod 3, 54534

They are open M-F 9:00-11:30 and 2:30-5:00
Saturdays from 9:00-11:30
(but, make sure to check their website here to confirm their hours)
