Mondsee Castle is the perfect place to relax and leave your busy, everyday life behind you. The walls of the ancient former Benedictine monastery still symbolize peace. The power of silence was used by monks who where meditating and praying in early times.

The traces of monks can still be experienced

Why a former Benedictine monastery became a competence center!

Mondsee as a university location has been in vogue since 2009. Mondsee Castle, with its history as a monastery, is the perfect location for focused work. Use it to hold a seminar, meetings, workshops or incentives.

It was a place for rest and recreation for monks in former times and nowadays it could also be the place to strengthen your health. Freedom, to find yourself, to hear your inner voice… In addition to a seminar we would like to recommend the ‘path of meditation’ to you. This is a powerful area in the competence center which can be a useful help for a guest who is learning and working. Walk through the meditational path and capture the essence of your life. Your ideas will have their origins right here – you will experience it.

Uncomplicated but special – slow down in Mondsee! We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Mondsee Castle in the Salzkammergut region.
