Westvleteren… our world-famous beer & Last Post Ypres
In the meeting centre “De Vrede”, situated right next to the St. Sixtus Abbey, we can enjoy “the best beer in the world” and a slice of authentic abbey cheese. This is a unique opportunity, since that the “Trappists of Westvleteren beers can only be served here! In the St. Sixtus Abbey, the Trappist, blonde or dark, is brewed with the utmost care from natural ingredients. Next, we get the chance to take part in the impressive ceremony at the foot of the Menin Gate, which is attended by hundreds of thousands of visitors a year from all over the world. The Last Post, traditionally a last salute to the dead, is performed by the buglers, volunteers from the Ypres fire brigade, honoring the veterans who were killed in the ‘Ypres Salient’ during World War I. The Last Post Association envisions to uphold this ceremony until the end of time.
Westvleteren & Last Post: €21 p.p. (€17 < 12y.),
Trappist & abbey cheese tasting included
