About the Stiftung Akademie Retreat Center

A greater unity must occur between both the scientific
and consciousness pathways which would link the human
evolution with the Higher Evolution.

Thank you for visiting our site. Please feel free to contact us, if you have any questions or need more information. We hope you feel inspired to pay us a visit at our beautiful retreat center in the heart of Bischofszell, Switzerland, next time you are in our neck of the woods!

A Retreat Center for Human Evolution Events & Workshops

We provide upscale, welcoming space rental facilities for large and small events in the beautiful Swiss mountainous scenery. Our spacious and light rooms are ideal for workshops, seminars, meditation, yoga and healing groups, practitioner training, and conferences. We are committed to serving the community in providing a beautiful space at affordable prices. Every year to give back to the community, we are a part of the big October “Rose-Festival”.

On a regular basis, we host a variety of seminars and trainings with internationally known and experienced teachers and therapists. On our calendar page, you can see what is happening at the center. If you are interested in hosting and facilitating a weekend event or workshop, please contact us for availability.

The Seminarhaus at Hofplatz 7 in the heart of Bischofszell

The Seminarhaus, a 400 years old stately house, is located centrally in Bischofszell, just a few blocks away from the train station, forest, farm land and the riverbanks of the Thur river. The building was owned and run by the Protestant church up until 2004, when it became a guest house.

About Bischofszell

Estimated to have been founded in the 9th century, the recorded history of the small idyllic town of Bischofszell dates back to the 12th century and the town prides itself on having 7 heritage sites of national significance, not to mention the many historical buildings that dominate the streets of the old part of town, such as the eponymous former bishop's residence. We are located at a central point between Zurich, Konstanz (Germany) and Bregenz (Austria) with easy access by train from the Zurich airport.

Our Seminar Rooms Are Available for Rental on the Weekends

The largest room can host up to 100 people and the smallest room 10-20 people depending on whether it is being used for yoga or other movement workshops or smaller academic circles. All rooms are heated and are fully set up with modern sound systems and video equipment for recording events. We have a great supply of yoga mats, meditation pillows, chairs and tables.

We offer three different spaces for rental in our center, the Great Assembly, the Chandelier Room and the Consultation Room.

Our rooms are available for retreats, workshops and other events on the weekends. Please inquire about availability by calling us or emailing us.
