The Tibetan name of the Berghof retreathouse is Rinchen Bangdzö, "precious treasure". It was founded in 2015 by a group of students from the Tibetan Buddhist teacher and Tibetologist HE Dagyab Kyabgoen Rinpoche and serves as a seminar and retreat house for Tibet House Germany in Frankfurt, a renowned cultural institute and study center under the patronage of HH the Dalai Lama and spiritual headed by HE Dagyab Kyabgoen Rinpoche and HE Zong Rinpoche.
Located on the outskirts of Wiesen, a small village in the Spessart Nature Park, surrounded by meadows and extensive forests, we can devote ourselves to study and meditation here and, on the basis of these experiences, explore how we have to interweave our Buddhist practice with constructive action in our personal environment and within society. It offers a place for a temporary retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in order to find access to more inner peace and deeper insights through meditation. We also offer Buddhist meditation courses and seminars.
The former country inn has a large meditation or seminar room with seat mats and cushions for about 50 people, a small seminar room with tables and chairs for about 20 people, a small meditation room for 15 people and rooms for the participants to stay overnight. There is a well-equipped kitchen and two dining rooms. For larger groups of 20 people or more, we provide a cook for vegetarian cuisine.Due to the location on the outskirts, you are usually completely undisturbed, even during walking meditations in our garden or on the forest paths.
We are open to cooperation events with other Buddhist, interreligious or ethical-ecological groups, as long as these are in line with the values and goals of Retreathaus Berghof e.V.
Here you can register for a course and for room and board. The rooms are allocated in the order in which they are registered. We ask for your understanding that due to hygienic reasons rooms can only be booked for the entire period of the course.
Please register for your online/zoom registration via the Tibethouse.
