You are drawn to the Pirchner Hof & Farm and the teachings of Hildegard von Bingen, particularly their maxim ‘nurture life wherever you find it’. From the moment of arrival you are enveloped in tranquillity, and feel truly nurtured. You’re so far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; the beauty of nature enchants you.
The day begins with a generous breakfast buffet; you try the hot porridge, in the tradition of Hildegard von Bingen. The activities on offer are varied and exciting, so you’ve planned a day of new experiences, starting with ‘smovey’. Guided by Wolfgang Peer, you swing the smovey back and forth and feel the tingle of the vibrations. After one session, you’re reaping the rewards and sneak off for a little siesta!
The pool invites. You dive in; as you glide up and down the length of the pool your troubles float away like little bubbles. You retire to a lounger with positive thoughts about finally finishing a book. An energising tea complements your rest and you feel nurtured, calm and utterly content.
After a nutritious dinner based upon Hildegard von Bingen’s teachings, you take the opportunity to learn something new in the Health House. A lecture on herbalism is about to start so you wander over, learn some tips and tricks regarding local herbs and how to use them, and leave with that satisfaction reserved for learning new things.
‘Your wellbeing is our priority’
The teachings of medieval Abbess Hildegard von Bingen play an essential role at the Pirchner Hof. They have analysed and adapted them to suit our times, to benefit our lifestyle and be once again perfectly in tune with nature. The Pirchner Hof adheres to this philosophy in all aspects. Guests are guided towards fresh options and achievable incentives for sustainable lifestyle changes. Preventative medicine and astute self-awareness is at the core of this approach.
