Our core group consists of Wolfgang Eisenbeutl from Tirol and his wife Elly Eisenbeutl from England. They are qualified yoga teachers and have years of experience in the areas of yoga and meditation. They have all done many retreats and spent long periods in Asia studying under various masters. Seeking to harmonize their lifestyle, integrate their yogic experience all year round and share this experience with as many people as possible, the AlpenRetreat was born.

The two months I spent in Alpen Retreat were absolutely amazing. You live in a house surrounded by mountains with a breathtaking view every morning. The work is staright forward and pretty simple, and you get a lot of free time to explore around. It's a place to reconnect with yourself and nature, and to meet beautiful souls from all over the world. On our free time we went walking in the mountains, to the lake, skiing and to cities close by. I even got the chance to participate in some yoga and meditation courses, which opened my heart incredibly. I truly recommend this place to everyone!

Thank you for your beautiful and touching words Claudia, it was great to have you with us and we're really happy it was such a positive experince for you and we wish you all the best with the beautiful life you have in front of you.



AlpenRetreat is big family always expanding.
I had my first volunteering experience here and it was really nice. I had a warm bed and healthy food available every day. I learned a lot about myself and others, I learned about how to manage such a big house. I felt respected. The only advice that I would give is to please remember we are also travelers, the reason I joined Worldpackers was to get to know the nearby areas, there was flexibility. I definitely recommend this place. I was even able to attend to some retreats ❤️ I’m grateful!!! Thank you Elly and Wolfgang ✨🇦🇹❤️☀️

Alpenretreat was my first volunteering experience and whoa it was PERFECT!! I felt like home, like a part of the family. If I ever had a problem, in work or even in my own personal life, I was heard and helped. I would recommend this place for everyone, cause this place/people helped me so much and made my time here so magical and memorable. I'm beyond happy and thankful to be part of this beautiful place ❤️

We love you Heidi! So happy you've stayed as long as you have and just know you always have a home here ;)



Cuando llegué a Alpen Retreat no tenía mucha idea de lo que me esperaba, es mi primer voluntariado y estaba un poco nerviosa, sin embargo, en pocos días me sentí como en casa. Elly, Wolfgang y todo el grupo de voluntarios han hecho de mi experiencia aquí, algo inolvidable.

Con respecto al trabajo realizado, es tal cual se encuentra en la descripción, son turnos claros con tareas específicas. De igual manera, los beneficios recibidos.

No tengo más que palabras de agradecimiento infinito por un verano increíble en el Tirol.

I was only here a month but i felt at home within a few weeks:)
The work is quite easy and straightforward and you will always have time to relax and have some time for yourself!
The accommodation for the volunteers is cosy and simple.
The meals were very good and Elly is open for you to be creative within the kitchen!
my time spent here helped me develop and connect with myself and nature, a very good first volunteer experience:)
