The Saint Gerold, a Saxon nobleman, is said to have lived here as a hermit in the early Middle Ages and later bequeathed his possessions to Einsiedeln Abbey, to which the provost still belongs. Today St. Gerold is a church meeting place with a seminar and a cultural center in the region, after it almost threatened to decay in the middle of the 20th century. Since 2014, it has been redeveloped in several phases, and the offer has been expanded. Departure for another epoch of the millennial history of the monastery. For long-distance hikers a good place to stay and inspiring contact point. propstei-stgerold.at
