Detailed description

Our house offers the opportunity to experience silence as healing, to uncover spiritual sources and to discover new approaches to the biblical message. On this path to a living experience of God, our guests are addressed in body, soul and spirit. You can attend one of our many courses (lasting between one day and one week), which combine meditation with yoga, hiking, dancing or even motorcycling or writing, embedded in a holistically oriented daily routine. Or you can come to us for a time-out all to yourself (minimum stay two nights). The Haus der Stille is located on the edge of the Westerwald in the small climatic health resort of Rengsdorf. A small villa in Art Nouveau style has been joined over time by a guest house and the "House of Silence". All three buildings are located in a beautiful park with a view of the Rhine valley, surrounded by meadows, forests and fields. Two meditation rooms, a devotional room and a separate room for body exercises are available to all guests, in addition to two conference rooms and the creative room. Guests are accommodated in simply but tastefully furnished single rooms with bathrooms. Three of the rooms are wheelchair accessible and some rooms have extra long beds. Please indicate your needs when registering. Some meeting rooms are handicapped accessible. Our own kitchen offers four full meals per day. For ecological reasons we cook vegetarian and prefer seasonal products from the region. For our guests who are restricted by food intolerances, we generally keep lactose- and gluten-free food available in the morning and evening. Those with other dietary restrictions can store food they have brought in the beverage refrigerator and consume it at the midday meal, if necessary. The ingredients of the midday meal with the label for allergy sufferers will be announced on the respective day after breakfast. In this way we strengthen the self-responsibility of our guests, who can thus participate in the common meals. The landscape is uniquely beautiful and invites to walks and hikes. A wide view over the Rhine valley to the Hunsrück and the Eifel make the walk through nature an unforgettable experience.

Brief description

Welcome to the Haus der Stille, the retreat and meditation centre of the Protestant Church in the Rhineland. Our house is open to all those who are looking for a time out to recharge their batteries, to reflect and reorient themselves. Our offer wants to encourage people to rethink their relationship to themselves, to others and to God. It wants to help to lay down burdens, to open up space to take unanswered questions seriously.
