Little Paradise is a meditation and retreat center just outside Hamburg, Germany. It is a place for a meditation holiday, spiritual retreat, or just a relaxing timeout.
We offer private accommodation, yet we are no hotel, pension or B&B; as all holiday rooms are equipped for self-supply. As a seminar house we offer rooms for workshops and other events.
The guesthouse has a large meditation room with a fireplace, and a cozy, well-equipped kitchen. An idyllic garden with terrace and garden pond invites you to pause and dwell. The small library of spiritual books is another great place to lounge and retreat in the house.
Our house is specially designed for people to find deep rest, stillness and to reconnect with nature and the inner. Many guests participate in shared meditations, others simply enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this place by resting and soaking in the amazing view of the garden, the lakes and wildlife of the nature sanctuary beyond. It provides the perfect environment for silence, meditation, writing, reading, walking, cycling, and bird watching.
We provide space and atmosphere for deep peace and silence.
Individual retreat guests are very welcome. Silent retreats are possible. Group events just as well.
Inhabitants and guests usually form a loose community. Shared meals in the kitchens, authentic encounters, deep conversations are part of our daily life. Guests are free to choose, how far they want to participate or stay for themselves.
The surrounding nature is truly beautiful. The number of large and rare birds around the center is quite unique for Germany: Eagles, hawks, falcons, bussards, red kites, marsh harriers, herons, cranes, storks, swans, flocks of geese and ducks and starlings and swallows, great owls, woodpeckers, sea gulls, kingfishers, bats and many more ... all of them can be seen from the house at different times of the year.
While you are surrounded by nature, the center is located just 25 min away from Hamburg City Center. You can also visit the city of Lubeck or the Baltic Sea, a mere 35 minutes away.
