  • The Mecca of Anthroposophy! It is such an inspirational place. All the surroundings feel different and even the windows have different shapes. We visited the 6th of January 2022, I was lucky to see the Big Conference Room and to buy plenty of books at the bookshop. We also visited the local sheeps.
