European garden event

With this setting as a backdrop, Prémontrés Abbey participates every year in the “European Garden Event” organized by the Ministry of Culture and Communication.

For three days in the beginning of June (official date to be announced), the Abbey offers visitors the chance to discover its gardens with guided visits and meetings.

Meet the gardeners of the Abbey

With three gardens, Prémontrés Abbey is surrounded by 2.5 hectares of nature. The cloister garden, or the Scent Garden, is a fragrant bouquet of plants and flowers used to make perfume. Since its creation in 2009, a real ecosystem with exceptionally diverse fauna has formed in this garden. In March 2018, a French garden was inaugurated at the base of the large facade of the cour d'honneur. This formal style garden has flower beds filled with topiaries and is decorated in the 18th century style with obelisks, orange tree planters and benches. Just nearby, the Moselle Garden is brimming with rural charm. The site is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the stunning view of the town of Pont-à-Mousson.
