Horse-heal, pellitory, cumin, thyme, violets, wormwood and hyssop: Hildegard used natural herbs in both the kitchen and the apothecary. Here at the Pirchner Hof, herbs form an integral part of everyday life, from the herb butter at breakfast to our herbal wraps in the Spa. Hildegard’s remedies act holistically and on every level. They are used to restore balance in body, mind and spirit so that we can feel healthy and well. This is the balance we seek to provide at our health retreat.
