Provostry of St. Gerold

Inspiring seminars and events with a monastic ambience

Are you looking for a place filled with peace and energy where you can hold your corporate event? A place remote from the hustle and bustle of open-plan offices, early morning conference calls and business dinners? Right in the midst of nature, more precisely in UNESCO’s Grosses Walsertal Biosphere Reserve, you will find a modern seminar centre in a medieval-looking monastery complex with a 1,000-year-old history: the Provostry of St. Gerold. The monastery is located a little off the main road in the middle of meadows and forests. This refuge for relaxation, contemplation and creativity welcomes you with a fantastic view of Vorarlberg’s mountains. The blend of inspiring seminars in an ambience steeped in history with modern conference technology showcases the ideal destination for your next corporate event set in nature.

Between seminars and spirituality: Welcome to the Provostry of St. Gerold

The best way to get to the Provostry situated 850 metres above sea level, is to take a bus or taxi directly to St. Gerold from the Bludenz or Feldkirch railway station. Or take your own set of wheels, and conveniently use one of the 50 parking spaces. What awaits you in the midst of all the greenery? Experience unforgettable meetings in the spiritual centre with its four newly-built seminar rooms fitted out with modern technical equipment and in another room packed with authentic monastic flair. In more concrete terms, five meeting rooms welcome you for seminars, workshops, conferences, congresses, incentives, varied team-building events as well as Christmas and corporate celebrations. In the largest room measuring 146 square metres, you can accommodate 100 guests with theatre or banquet-style seating or 120 participants standing. Or you can choose the classroom seating arrangement for 45 guests. Another possibility if you wish: 40 attendees can be seated at a classic U-shaped table. Refuel and get your energy back on track during your development training and retreat days in the small community in the western part of Austria. Relish the tranquillity of the spacious monastery grounds.
