Kranzbach has developed something very special for you. In the middle of the forest – above the original Treehouse – stands a Meditation House.
A truly relaxing place to retreat for guests, who wish to practice meditation during their stay in Kranzbach –either alone or with a coach. In absolute tranquility. For everyone, who in the ever more stressful outside world would like to find inner peace. The Meditation House in the forest is an architectural „piece of art“ – designed by Architect Kengo Kuma from Tokyo.
Kengo Kuma was born in 1954. In 1979, he graduated from the University of Tokyo. He then worked as a guest lecturer at the University of Colombia before he founded Kengo Kuma & Associates in 1990. Since 2009, he is a Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture (University of Tokyo).
We deliberately chose an architect from Japan: Meditation plays a significant role in the Far East; Japan has built since hundreds of years houses predominantly out of wood; Architect Kengo Kuma is recognized as the master of combining nature and inspirational design. Architect Barbara Poberschnigg and DI Mario Huber from STUDIO LOiS in Innsbruck worked with the design from Kengo Kuma and created the detailed plans as well as the coordination of materials. The wooden cladding on the building is constructed from 1,550 pieces of wood (Silver Fir). The roof is made from Zinc, like one would see on a church or a protected building.
Kranzbach has a meditation program that offers beginners an introduction to meditation techniques. For those that already practice the art of meditation it offers an intensive experience in a very special atmosphere.
We offer our guests Yoga retreats and special Meditation programs. An overview is available in the Kranzbach Workshop Program.
During your stay in Kranzbach you have the option to take part in a variety of different meditation sessions – in small groups with a maximum of 14 participants. Our meditation experts in Kranzbach are the trained in different types of meditation and will take you on a unique, ’ Journey of Calmness’.
