Silence is a journey towards simplicity and clarity. It helps us to discover the profound things that really matter in life. The present day is characterised by an interest in silence. Withdrawal is necessary, because it enables us to get a grip on our increasingly complex, challenging and confusing lives.

Silent Moments at Guesthouses

Take a break from day-to-day life to simply be and peacefully listen to your surroundings and yourself. A three-day stop in a silent inn is an opportunity for rest, spending time outdoors, guided light exercise, delicious local food, relaxation for mind and body, and for actively listening to the sounds of silence.

Visitors can also pre-book massages and other treatments for an additional fee.
