Munkeby Monastery

This week I had a short stop at Munkeby in Levanger Municipality. Munkeby, the “place of the monks” close to river Levangerelva was northernmost Norwegian monastery established by the Cistercians in the 12th century.
The new Munkeby Mariakloster – kloster is Norwegian for monastery – has been founded in 2008 by four French monks who practice a contemplative life and produce cheese. Guests are welcome to join for the Liturgy of the Hours.
