A few notes about L’Abri during COVID:

  • We will be adapting our COVID precautions according to the Swiss government’s recommendations and also according to the current situation in Switzerland. These may change during the term.
  • We cannot guarantee any reservation in 2021. We recommend making flexible travel plans.
  • The Swiss government currently does not make any distinction between regulations for vaccinated and non-vaccinated people. We will be following the Swiss government’s recommendations in this regard.

We recommend a full term to give you enough time to study, reflect and engage deeper in community life.

3 or 4 weeks might help you find rest and inspiration.

A shorter visit, can give you an idea about the place, before a potential longer commitment. We recommend to stay a week and a minimum of 3 nights – fewer makes it hard to get a feel of the rhythm and the place.

In between terms: Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate during breaks. Please work your travel plans around the dates above.*

*(On rare occasions we make room in one of the apartments on the L’Abri grounds during term breaks for sightseeing purposes. Please contact us using the form on the Reservations page to inquire about this possibility).
