New Year’s Spiritual Timeout
Starting anew in 2021 is a priority. Bavaria brings tranquil spirituality. Bavarian monastaries are a great place for rest and reflection as well as physical and mental relaxation. The Waldsassen Abbey, revitalized by Abbess M. Laetitia Fech is the ideal place for guests to discover the beauty of nature. Its splendid parkland, water features and beds of fragrant herbs in the Abbey’s garden transport people away from everyday life and back to peaceful moments.
