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.

Tip of Father Kolumban
“The ‘Weg der Sinne – Weg der Stille’ (’Trail of the Senses – Trail of Silence’) below the Provost Church that leads past 14 ponds. Poetic words and aphorisms by mystics from different religions invite you to linger and meditate – in an encounter with yourself.”
