Abbey of Stavelot

Between 1999 and 2002, the Abbey of Stavelot was completely renovated thanks to finance provided by the Walloon region. The cloister was rebuilt into the monastery building. Indeed, on the old foundations, a new wing was built out of glass and stainless steel in the proportions of the fourth wing destroyed during the French revolution.

Three museums are now housed within the old building of the abbey:

  • Museum of the Principality of Stavelot-Malmedy
  • Spa-Francorchamps Racetrack Museum
  • Guillaume Apollinaire Museum

Next to the current abbey, the archaeological remains of the 11th Century abbey church were recently excavated and made open to the layman.
