Malche is also the name of a place. It refers to a valley between the Oderbruch region and the hilly Barnim area, whose central area is a park-like garden with old fruit trees and flowers. A church and six residential buildings and guest houses are arranged around the garden.
The Malche has always been a supportive community. Spiritual offerings, shared meals and mutual support in everyday life have been essential aspects ever since the facility was first established. Guests are always very welcome! Tours are also available.
Our guest house with a total of 25 beds in cosy single, twin and triple rooms is available for groups and individual travellers. It is also possible to cater for additional overnight guests. Further rooms are available in the other buildings, please enquire.
There are one seminar room in the house and another two on the premises (equipment available by request). There is also a fully equipped eat-in kitchen.
You are welcome to join the community’s prayers and church services at any time. A little prayer chapel is available for anyone wishing to spend time in silence.
