Discover relaxation for the Body and Soul

Encounter is not only the title of the carving in our entrance hall, but the first impression of the retreat and our community where one can find relaxation and fulfilment in close contact with God and mankind. To achieve this, the Pallottine community are keen to insert all their energy.

A grand atmosphere

The old ceilings, pillars, interiors and arches in the entrance hall and especially so in the dining room, give the former grand villa (late 19th century) a distinguished atmosphere. Since the renovations of the rooms, seminar and community rooms, the house has maintained its original charm and retains its value.


The house, with its 60 Beds (Single, double and triple rooms, all with WC, Telephone, Safe and Internet connection) is open for:

  • Individual guests, or groups who are searching for inner and quiet reflection
  • for people undertaking religious and other courses
  • for admirers of the "Donaustadt" district of Vienna, with its rich offerings in art and culture
  • for guests wishing to conduct their own conventions.

The pleasantly bright festival hall, with seating for 70 (less with tables), is an ideal room for conferences, lectures or various meetings. Three further seminar rooms seating between 10 and 20 are also available.

The dining room and community room (with television) with bar add to the comfortable atmosphere for our guests. For a small charge, televisions for the rooms can be loaned out.

The modern Church "Zur Königin der Apostel" (Queen of the Apostles Church), with around 200 seats on the same complex, gives the opportunity to attend services, church festivals, just for silent prayer and getting in touch with with God; in some cases lectures with adequate themes for larger numbers can be held here.
