Refuge Retreat by the Pond

About This Event

Refuge Retreat in a small hut by the pond

The cabin is equipped with a bed, a desk, a small lamp, minimal power supply, a water tank to fill up - and plenty of peace and quiet and time in the middle of our beautiful garden. You are about 200 m away from the main house. Your bathroom would also be in the main house. We provide you with two meals a day and take-aways for the evening.

The hut is built with existing materials at short notice. So please do not expect a very comfortable accommodation! In the summer months, however, it is a wonderful place for a meditative time close to nature. You are invited - depending on the Corona rules that apply to you - to meditate either in the meditation hall or in an anteroom.


€60 per day, incl. food

Minimum stay: 5 days

Venue Highlights

The Zen Center is located in the Southern Black Forest, right in the corner between France, Switzerland, and Germany. It is a beautiful area to hike in the summer and a renowned area for cross-county skying in the winter. On a sunny day, you can get a view of the Swiss Alps. Freiburg (Germany) is about one hour drive North of us, Basel (Switzerland) about one hour South, and Strasbourg (France) about one hour West.


We offer single rooms, double rooms, and dorm style rooms. Some rooms have a sink and some don't. We have one suite with a bathroom and one single room with a shower. Bedding and towels are always included. All rooms have a desk and wifi. For most rooms the bathrooms and toilets are on the same floor.
