Every section is equipped with its own kitchen and living space, and can be separately booked.

How to find us

By car or by bus...
From Munich you’ll get to the retreat most quickly on the motorway from München to Garmisch-Partenkirchen (A95), coming off at exit 7 (Seeshaupt).  Then continue through Seeshaupt in the direction of Weilheim.  Around 6km after Seeshaupt drive directly to Magnetsried.

From the west or the north it is easiest to take the motoway between Ulm and Memmingen (A7).  In Memmingen, change to the A96, direction Munich.  At Inning, exit 30, leave the motorway and drive through Herrsching and Weilheim to Magnetsried.

You’ll find the YMCA retreat if you turn off opposite the church.  After 150m the retreat is on the right-hand side.
