The retreat house in Füssen is a former hotel which was remodelled in 2018. The hotel which includes a separate building for yoga practice has been used regularly for the delivery of yoga courses in the last 15 years. At the end of 2012 it was decided to cease the hotel operations and to convert the building into a retreat house. When renovating the house, we attached much importance to using natural materials and discreet, warm colours.
The rooms were equipped with attractive wooden fittings. Thus, the retreat guests can look forward to a stay in a pleasant atmosphere amidst the beautiful Allgäu scenery.
The retreat house Füssen is situated at an altitude of 800 metres right at the foot of the Alps in direct proximity to the lake Forggensee. The nearby lake invites to make hiking trips or to go for a swim in the summer. It is above all a place of retreat into silence and the practice of mindfulness meditation. Regaining distance, slowing down, giving things time and developing healing spiritual skills.
We look forward to offering you a well-balanced program guided by experienced meditation teachers of the mindfulness tradition.
With best wishes
