Hospitality in Limburg is always with a lot of joviality, humor and a lot of coziness. This place is no different. Try the delicious beer, have a cheese plate (the cheese is marinated in their beer) and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of castle Ter Dolen. The brewery is small and the tour is short, but it's a fun tour with... More

It's a ace to visit short for a walk in the forest and the environment and to drink a beer of the local brewery. Especially if you're biking in this area, what the must do vacation sport is in Limburg, then is this a nice stop over. Only look out that you can still leave :-)

No food served on the terrace in summer apart from a cheese plate and a plate mixed of cheese and ham and more. These plates are big and accompanied with very tasty bread and butter. People mostly come here to have a good beer or another drink on the very pleasant terrace. Personnel were friendly I do recommend it

All of the beers ranging from Ter Dolen Blond to Bruin and Tripel are amazing. Also the setting is awesome with Castle De Dool

This brwery is small, but the beers they create are amazing, especially the Ter Dolen Blond is my personal favorite. Enjoy the sun inside the walls of the brewery with a nice piece of cheese. Please be aware that they are not serving lunch like the La Trappe Brewery.

We love to sit on the terrace and enjoy a glass of beer and some cheese. A nice atmosphere, can be a little bit crowded in the weekends when the weather is nice. A nice place to relax after a working day!

Ideal place to drink great Belgium biers. If you like sweet bier, you should get the "Ter Dolen Kriek", a very good bier with cherry's. There also is a small play garden next to the terrace.

We stopped at Ter Dolen after visiting Achel on the way back to Brussels having very little knowledge about the establishment. We sat down and found ourselves served by a friendly, English-speaking bartender/waiter, who was more than happy to take us through a tasting of the beer menu. We tasted each beer (samples on the house!) and each ordered our... More

In the middle of Limburg, this small brewery offers some great beers. It's always packed with people enjoying drinks with some friends. It is also possible to visit the brewery itself.
