AlpenRetreat changed my life! Thank you so much.
I just came from a 2 week retreat and I can’t stop thinking how great this experience was. The place is very cosy and it’s surroundings are amazing. The mountains, the waterfall, the autumn colors… Also, the team is wonderful. Warm hearted people, kind, always with a smile for you and excellent cuisine chefs 🙂 I do highly recommend this place and their retreats ***
The Alpine Retreat is a wonderful place to get away and reconnect with nature, friends, or just yourself. Marie, our hostess, was wonderfully friendly, welcoming, and offered lots of suggestions for things we could do in the area. We went showshoeing, tobogganing, and hiking. If you are able to share a dinner from the kitchen – do it! The vegetarian food is awesome — perfect healthy and hearty food to wrap up a day of outdoor activity. The rooms are tidy and decorated with a surprisingly fluid mix of old Tirol and Eastern styles. The faint aroma of incense freshens the hallways, and a large open yoga and meditation room (which was always open for use!) encourages utter relaxation. The retreat is kind of out of the way, but that’s really what makes it so great– amazing views of the mountains and hiking opportunities right outside. Stay here. You won’t be disappointed.
I just stayed at AlpenRetreat for a long weekend and was surprised with such a relaxing and inspiring time, that it felt like an entire holiday – far away from everyday life. Everyone was authentically warm and comforting. People from the retreat, not only shared their truly lovely place, but also stories from their lives. Everything far far succeeded my expectations. A spontaneous snow board lesson in puffy powdery snow, an intro to meditation, the opportunity to practice yoga, cuddling up to the old fashioned tile oven (Kachelofen), meaningful conversations over food prepared with love and creativity… what more can you possibly wish for? Thank you so much! I will find some time to return, for sure.
Fraser, Beatrice, Wolfgang and Jan are the amazing people that run The Alpen Retreat, which is a big, beautiful chalet overlooking stunning mountains. The food which I was lucky to eat while I was there was of amazing quality, and all my needs were more than met. I loved my stay, and indeed have new friends that I’m looking forward to seeing again. Can’t recommend enough!
WOW. This was a new experience for us! This Alpenretreat was completely different than any other place we stayed while visiting Bavaria and Austria. We were welcomed into their facility with open arms and were made to feel like family immediately. We did not realize that their was a dance workshop going on at the same time, which was fine and had people from all different places in attendance. We were one of two couples there that booked through AirBNB. It is a very “new-age” type of place with Buddah(s) and Karma-type items strewed about. They had lots of tea and coffee available at all times. The hosts were more than accommodating to us and the WIFI signal was good for being in the middle of the alps. We also forgot our credit card there and they promptly mailed it to us with no problems. If you are looking for a picturesque place in the alps for relaxation, meditation and delicious vegetarian cooking than look no further! 🙂
We had a fantastic stay in the AlpenRetraet recently and really enjoyed our time. All people there were sooo lovely. We booked for 4 Nights and enjoyed our great time with the lovely located rooms in the middle of beautiful mountains and forest. The view was fantastic when you wake up in the morning and look outside of your room. The food was great and organic and cooked fresh every day. Many thanks to Beatrice, Wolfgang, Jan and all the others. We will definitely come back in Summer or Winter. In Winter time the beautiful surrounding invites you for great skiing experience. The organization was fantastic and you should definitely book your stay in combination with the great Yoga offerings. The yoga room has a quiet and relaxing atmosphere and a great view as well.
The AlpenRetreat was the highlight of our trip. It’s location in the Alps is beautiful, but the people were even better. We arrived in the later evening and they prepared a wonderful dinner for us. We ended up staying up talking into the early morning with the folks staying and living there. Our group ranged in age from 14 to 66 and all loved it. I expect to return for a visit again in the future.
Amazing stay at a very special place among kind and gentle people!!!
Great location and tastefully done up house. You will feel comfortable the moment you step in. Very friendly and caring hosts. Definitely recommended!
