Restaurant Munkklostret offers comfortable fine dining in a historic environment.
During the Middle Ages, Vadstena was the location of a Catholic monastery for Monks and Nuns of the Birgittine Order.
The restaurant is largely located in the same medieval buildings that were once the monastery, now adapted to meet the requirements of modern living. The menu is seasonal with succulent steaks, lamb, game and fish dishes, which are flavoured with herbs from the monastery garden, and served in the monks’ old dorms.
Find your favourite Chateau in their 635 year old wine cellar... The monks used the cellar for storage of beer, wine and even cheese. Today the wine cellar consists of approximately 5000 bottles divided into about 700 varieties, mostly from France and the classic wine regions Bordeaux and Burgundy.
Did you know Vadstena was the home to Scandinavia's largest breweries in the Middle Ages? Part of the brewery buildings are preserved just in front of the monastery church, and archaeological reports show many interesting finds. In the spring of 2019 their first version of ”Pax Vobiscum”, was launched, this is a historic beer created using old sources of literature and culture crops.
