Welcome to our guesthouse
The guesthouse lies in a fantastic position on the southeastern coast of Lake Constance between Friedrichshafen and Langenargen in an area full of orchards, woods and open country perfect for peace and quiet, and provides you with friendly hospitality and the opportunity to escape from everyday life.
Perfect location near Lake Constance
At the widest point of Lake Constance, there is the Swabian shore with a breathtaking view of the Swiss mountains and the Säntis (2.502 m) opposite. Friedrichshafen is located directly on the lake and is bordered by an agricultural hinterland. Sailors and motorboat drivers will find the largest water sports center on Lake Constance at the mouth of the river Schussen, while hikers and cyclists especially appreciate the charming hills of the hinterland with its hop gardens, vineyards and orchards. The zeppelin city of Friedrichshafen attracts visitors with its Mediterranean flair. The shore of Lake Constance - an area full of contrasts, embedded in an enchanting landscape.

How to reach us
Before over 90 years the Sisters of the Steyler Missionary Society renovated a former farmhouse into a guesthouse. Over the years the guesthouse has been further renovated and extended. Since 2013 the guesthouse has been managed by the St. Elizabeth Missionary Society which belongs to the Franciscan Sisters of Reute, providing this place with hospitality and spirituality. The parton of our guesthaus is the Holy Theresia of Lisieux“.

Very personnel memories
Memories of the Theresienheim Nunnery Moos from Ms. Christa Ihn
The beginning of the „Era Moos“ in my life:
Some time ago I was on holiday on Lake Constance. There is a „Nunnery Moos“ Earlier it was an old peoples home, the people were cared for by the Sisters of the Steyler Mission. A short time afterwards the house was partly rebuilt and renovated to accomodate families who wished to holiday in the area. The catering is excellent, bathing possibilities exist on the banks of Lake Constance and the prices are extremely reasonable. That would be something for everyone, just try it sometime.
We are an integrative business, we help old people and people with disabilities. We are there to help when people need it. In 1999 the Franciscan sisters from Reute founded the St. Elisabeth foundation, who left their mark with their charitable work 150 years ago in Upper-Suebian.
The St. Elisabeth Foundation
The foundation has more than 2.700 staff between Ulm and Lake Constance, and supports around 6.000 people in the area. We are committed to help persons with disabilities, geriatric welfare, hospice, child and youth welfare services.
