He current abbey dates back to 1935 when monks came from Oosterhout (North Brabant) to Egmond to breathe new life into the Benedictine order that flourished here during the Middle Ages. During its history, Egmond Abbey developed into a religious and cultural centre and grew to become the region's most important Benedictine abbey. An abbey shop now sells a variety of homemade products. Tours of the pottery, museum and abbey chapel are available for parties of 10 or more. After a cup of coffee and a slice of cake on arrival, visitors can view the abbey chapel. The abbey is not open to visitors. Tours can be arranged by contacting.
Concerts and lectures are regularly held in the abbey chapel.
