Monastery Ter Apel

It's the only one left that can still be recognised as a monastery.

This monastery is a must to visit. The red bricks contrast with the surrounding forest and impress you for sure. Of the 34 medieval monasteries and convents in Groningen, this monastery was the last one to be founded.

For centuries, this is where monks worked, prayed, and lived.

Fun fact: for centuries, monks brewed beer on the monastery premises. You can still see this in the wooded areas in the form of wild hop.
