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!

The Center 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 ✨🇦🇹❤️☀️

The Center 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 ❤️

I enjoyed my experience at the Alpen retreat! Elly and Wolfgang are such lovely and understanding people and will be flexible for your needs and wants! 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:)

I instantly felt welcomed by Elly, Wolfgang and the other volunteers. I was welcomed with big hugs and smiling faces. I never once doubted if I belonged at Alpen Retreat and that was a very important feeling to me. The work exchange was great with working 6 hours a day helping with cleaning, cooking and other various task. I learned so much just within the 4 weeks I was there such as yoga, meditation & cooking. I feel like I'm truly coming back into “the real world” wanting to live a healthier lifestyle because of Alpen Retreat. Can't wait to come back 💗
