Unwinding at Stift Urach

Stift Urach provides ideal accommodation for a relaxing break or a hiking holiday, as well as being a place of personal contemplation and tranquility.
Choose whatever catering arrangements suit your needs, be it an overnight stay with breakfast or full-board with three meals per day. Personal spiritual mentoring and pastoral care are available on request.
With the Church of St. Amandus, the Residential Palace, the market square and the historic old town close by, there is plenty to see and do, while the beautiful surroundings of the Swabian Alb offer a wealth of opportunities for hiking and excursions. Relax and unwind in the AlbThermen thermal baths, the spa resort or the Höhenfreibad outdoor pool.


Guest rooms

We consciously do not equip our guest rooms with televisions so as to create an atmosphere suited to rest and contemplation for our guests. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. The complex is suitable for disabled persons, and six rooms are wheelchair accessible. We have two lifts, as well as a stairlift to the chapel. Five rooms have extra-long beds measuring 2.10 m.

Prayer services

In the midst of the conference activities, the chapel is a place of tranquility and reflection. From Monday to Saturday at 8:00, 12:15 and 18:00 we celebrate divine service with our own liturgy.
The chapel is situated above the vestry of the Church of St. Amandus. It is separated from the chancel of the church merely by a glazed tracery, and originally served as a library.
The glass cross by the artist Saskia Schultz in the window behind the altar is reminiscent of the cross of the Brethren of the Common Life, its design incorporating elements of the Tree of Life.
On your way to the chapel you pass two works of art. In the staircase to the chapel: The Crucified (Broken Wooden Pillar), by Karl Schwarz, Hülben. At the entrance to the chapel: The Great Invitation (The Crucified), by Alexander Neumann
