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.
