In the Dutch province of Limburg lies south of Venlo the picturesque monastery village of Steyl.

In a hectic world full of competition, monasteries offer time to take a breath. They are luxury of peace, silence and time for yourself, time for God and time to discover the source of your own existence. Steyl invites you to discover this oasis for yourself.

Mission house St. Michael’s was founded in 1875 by St. Arnold Janssen. It is the mother house of the religious congregation of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD), one of the largest religious congregation in the world, present today in more than 80 countries in the world.

Get to know the rich history of Steyl, discover hidden beauty, experience and enjoy yourself and be inspired by the spirituality of this special place on the banks of the river Maas.
