Guest house

“Let those whom the providence of God has led to the monastery be received by the sisters with reverence and kindness.”

(from our Order’s Constitutions)

Klaarland-gastenhuis

Anybody wishing to spend a few days of silence and contemplation is very welcome to stay at our guesthouse.
Our guesthouse focuses on personal retreat or reflection. We do not merely wish to offer merely accommodation. Rather, we encourage our guests to take part in our liturgical prayer.

The monastery is surrounded by forests and farmland, which are very good for walking and cycling. In a small library, books on spirituality, prayer and spiritual life are available.

Reservations

When contacting us for the first time, we ask you to do so by telephone. In other cases, you can also contact us by email. The sisters who take care of the guesthouse can be reached:

For groups who want to spend a day of meditation or have a meeting in a peaceful, quiet atmosphere, a room is available for 25 persons maximum. If desired, we can serve coffee, tea, and soup for lunch for these groups.
