The origin of this monastery is a religious community in the early 12th century came in the inhospitable dunes of Flanders, near present-Koksijde. In 1138 led the first abbot, Fulk, this community within the Cistercian Order. Ten Duinen developed into by far the most important Cistercian abbey in Flanders and the Netherlands.

Two serious crisis moments were decisive in the further history of this institution. In the second half of the 16th century abbey and shared community in the total desperation caused by the revolt, particularly the violent religious wars. From then began a slow recovery in 1584, initially in the outer near Ten Bogaerde (Koksijde), from Bruges in 1627, within the privacy and security of a big city. This new facility was accompanied by an impressive new building in use today as the Grand Seminary of the Diocese of Bruges (Potterei 72). Moreover, the Duinenabdij few years earlier, in 1624, the patrimony of Ter Doest in Lissewege incorporated. In Doest was also a Flemish Cistercian, who in 1559 was assigned to the bishop of the then newly created Diocese Brugge. In the year 1624 did said the bishop from the Ter-Doest heritage in favor of the Dunes abbey.
