Camping at the EIAB

We have a simple, but pleasant and  big campground at the EIAB for those who choose to camp for the German/Dutch Retreat. Our campground is not far from the main buildings, and there are toilet and shower blocks located just nearby.

Please bring your own tent, camping foam pad, sleeping bag, pillow etc. and whatever other items that will make your sleeping comfortable and warm. No camping cars of any size are allowed.



There are many pensions near the EIAB available for overnight stays. Many are located close to the EIAB (within 10km), and are only 5-15 minutes away by car. Prices start from €25/person/night.

If you would like to register as a commuter, simply book a pension  room  near the EIAB, and register for the retreat as a “Commuter”. Please note that you  are responsible for your own transportation to and from the EIAB daily for this option.

Mobilty issues

We have very few bedrooms on the ground floor at the EIAB, and there is a step from the entrance of the building to the ground floor rooms. During the retreat, you would need to get from one place to another for the different activities, and some of the EIAB grounds have slopes. We may also walk on steep paths during walking meditation.

If you have concerns regarding this matter, please write to us at: before registering.
