Surrounded by mild hills, forests and farming land, the Domain of Landguet Ried offers group visitors the possibility to de-connect from worldly activity, relax and deep-dive into reflective and insightful work. It is therefore an ideal setting to explore teams’ group dynamics, do silent retreats, discover the inner source of well-being and connect to yourself and your peers from an inner space of authenticity. Our visitors leave home feeling energized and envigorated, with a sense of connection and purpose in their lives.






An Inspiring Place


about us

Landguet Ried is a seminar and accommodation center in the area of the Swiss capital of Bern, easily accessible by public transport yet surrounded by nature and forests, providing group organisers with an inspiring setting for deep and authentic interactions among groups, where participants can meet, learn, exercise, interact and share.

Inspired by Eastern traditions and values, Landguet Ried helps promote a mindful way of living, through which social, environmental and human sustainability can be attained. In that sense, the Center’s food offering is vegetarian, favours the use of local produce and has a vocation to serve the local community.
