Valuable encounters at the St. Gerold Provost Church

The St. Gerold Provost Church in Großes Walsertal is a place to draw strength, take some time out and rest.

It is, above all, a place of ‘valuable encounters’, as Father Kolumban says. Encounters that make something resonate in people – and everyone takes something of that home with them. Guests are welcome regardless of their denomination, the Father emphasises.

Hikers stay overnight here, as do participants of the yoga and voice training courses, the retreats, concerts and readings that take place on a regular basis. The unifying idea: “The appreciation of creation,” says Father Kolumban. And they all get talking to each other – at the latest at the evening meals that are served at the long tables in the restaurant or on the terrace with the magnificent view across the valley to Raggal. The St. Gerold Provost Church, whose origins date back to the 13th century, belongs, by the way, to the monastery in Einsiedeln in Switzerland. And Großes Walsertal is exactly the right environment for such a spiritual place. Because here, in the Biosphere Park, there is still time for yourself and others – and of course for walks in nature.

      The provostry will reopen on 21 June.

      We cultivate a varied cuisine in which we obtain and process fresh products from the monastery garden, our agriculture, the biosphere park “Grosses Walsertal” and from the region wherever possible. The milk comes from our neighbour Bernd Pfister, the trout from the trout farm Güfel in Meiningen, the organic turkey comes from Pirmin Bickel… Let us spoil you!
