“ORT der STILLE” – interreligious sanctum in Alpbach
The nonagonal building is perched in a lovely spot behind the Der Böglerhof - pure nature resort in Alpbach.
The building's pointed wooden roof is covered in wooden shingles. The foundations form an enneagon.
The nine enneagonal columns represent the nine types of human beings and the human creation of different religions and denominations. The fountain in the centre symbolises the source of life and divine energy; the bowl represents femininity and receptiveness and the glass stele in the centre masculinity and transparency.
A visit can easily be fit in on a walk through the village.
