Enjoy the hospitality – experience the history

The Schöntal Monastery has around 150 beds divided between three buildings. The rooms in the Bildungshaus (New Abbey) are lovingly restored cells of former monks.  

There’s a total of 88 rooms: they are light and airy, with practical furnishings, and have a desk with light, telephone, and plenty of space to store your clothes and other important items. WiFi has been available in all the rooms since 2015.

Nearly all the rooms have their own bathroom with shower / WC. A few have shared sanitary facilities close by. We provide you with a fluffy bathrobe to wear when you go from your room to the bathroom.

Enjoy the soothing tranquillity, the wonderful natural surroundings. Recharge your batteries. Following our maxim “more – less – differently” it will be our greatest pleasure to show you our hospitality.
