St. Gerold is the cultural center of Biosphere Reserve Großes Walsertal. It was here around a 1000 years ago that the hermit Gerold began the story of the valley settlement. At his grave site a monastery was built, around which the first settlers settled – this became the Propstei St. Gerold. Their way of life and quite extraordinary cultural product is known today far beyond the borders of Großes Walsertal. After extensive, careful renovation the special atmosphere and tranquility of the place has been retained maintaining this place as a treat for the soul. On the theme path of the senses you will find in the silence of nature, inspiring sayings and words of poetry from different religions.
Below the Propstei St. Gerold is the meditation theme path "Path of the Senses". It leads along lovingly created ponds through the soothing forest and invites you to pause.
For hikers and people interested in culture, the untouched nature and the people in the valley help make St. Gerold is a good place to organise your thoughts and take active rest.
The Propstei St. Gerold with its seminars and events is a central cultural point for the whole valley.
Those looking for a balance in cross-country skiing, touring, snowshoeing, winter hiking or skiers will find cosiness in the huts and tranquility in the impressive landscape of the three small ski areas in the Biosphere Park - far from the crowds.
