Monastery Retreats: Oases of Peace and Contemplation
Monasteries are among the oldest hostelries known to humanity. They have always been considered oases of peace and contemplation – back in the olden days and even today! Stressed out from the pressures of modern life, more and more people today are enjoying monastery retreats as a welcome opportunity to rest and regenerate.
In Osnabrücker Land, too, the former and present monastic houses are popular places in which to leave the rat race behind for a day or two. They offer the ideal setting for people to recharge inner batteries, reflect and find themselves. Each monastery is a world of its own in which visitors can immerse themselves and take a journey to their inner self. A stay at a monastery is an experience filled with meaning, with joy and with culture. The region offers visitors everything from a guided tour of monastic sites, concert visits, participation in the monks’ chants to retreats and special creative and meditational seminars and courses designed to aid physical regeneration and to help participants find a new life rhythm.
