What we value We, the members of the Neuwaldegg Consulting Group enjoyed our meetings at Retter for many years now. We love the light, perfectly furnished, friendly and spacious conference rooms as well as their personal and attentive service. It is no coincidence that we developed our group‘s vision ‘Inspiring Partnerships for Lasting Success’ at Hotel Retter.

„Hand on heart“: We think with our hearts, more than with our heads. We use our energy for what our heart wants and the measure of the heart is love. Love for our customers and love for what we do. You will feel this energy here on all levels - consciously and unconsciously.

At Retter expect: Enthusiasm for Quality We have lived and breathed hospitality for over 40 years. Our veteran team members are true professionals who will support you from the early stages of conference planning all the way through the completion of the central event. We believe in good old-fashioned home-style cooking and serve you award-winning delicacies, made from certified organic, locally sourced ingredients.

Once at Retter - Always at Retter Our 1200 m² conference area, encompassing 20 conference rooms and beautiful garden spots was developed with the help of regular customers, coaches and scientists. Regional building materials, warm daylight, a sense of quiet and space open your senses and lead you to what is essential. Our 1200 m² spa area „BE Aware“ offers relaxation and balance. In our comfortable hotel rooms you will sleep in extra-long beds. A central electricity switch next to your bed eliminates all electric fields around your bed overnight. We care about our environment and do our best to keep our carbon footprint small. We heat with biomass and ambient temperature fuel cells. We water our gardens with rain water and use it to flush our toilets.

Retter works A conference with us becomes a profitable investment.

Talk is cheap, so we invite you to experience Retter and let us pamper you.
