In addition the Milarepa Retreat House has two large beautiful and attic rooms with two bathrooms. In each room 10 persons can spend the night on mattresses  and with own sleeping bag. A separate hut offers an accommodation option for two persons in two rooms with one bathroom and a small kitchen. This option may be conveneint for married couples or partners who wish to do a retreat together. This hut also has a small protector shrine dedicated to Achi that is accessible to all. When a Three Year Retreat is not currently underway, the seven single rooms of the retreat house can also be used for short retreats or be booked for special events.


Internet access is available in the cafeteria and on the first floor of the guest house, but not in the rooms.


Please plan your stay so that you are present from the first to the last day of the retreat. It is also helpful to organise all your personal preparations from home in such a way that you can begin the retreat in a relaxed way right after your arrival, without having to deal with other matters that you might have forgotten or not thought of during your prior planning and preparations.

The rooms are available starting at 16:00 on the day of your arrival, and until 12:00 on the day of your departure. If you are arriving or departing outside of office hours or on a weekend or holiday, please let us know well in advance by email.

You will be given your room key in the office. We request you to pay a deposit of 20,00 € as security, which will be refunded to you upon your departure.

Please leave your room clean and strip your bed before you leave. Participants in group retreats all take on specific jobs in the building, courtyard, kitchen and in house-cleaning. Karma yoga lists are posted where all jobs are listed with names and dates. If the rooms are not left clean, we must charge a fee of 20,00 €.

Message from H.E.Garchen Rinpoche on October 10, 2020



It doesn’t matter whether one calls oneself a Buddhist or not a Buddhist. The Dharma is love.

When you see how your love touches others, it will become your happiness to give your happiness away.

Love is the only cause of happiness. Its nature is all-pervasive like space.

Love is the sunlight of the mind.

H.E.Garchen Rinpoche has finished his retreat and sends us this message:
