If you fancy a walk around the beautiful area, discovering the nature that surrounds the abbey, this is the tour for you. We expand on the story of the abbey and include the monks’ use of the landscape and the surrounding nature. The abbey’s land extended far beyond the central abbey complex. It covered a large area – all the way down to Esrum Lake. The Cistercian monks used their hands; they were skilled craftsmen, builders, farmers and engineers. Our walk takes us around the now non-existent abbey wall, and we paint a picture of the living abbey with its travel stables, utility rooms, barns, animal husbandry, water mills and bell foundry – and much more besides. The walk around the area is about 2 kilometres and takes 90 minutes. Remember sensible footwear and wear weather-appropriate clothes.
