Visit the Bruderhof

Every year, we welcome thousands of visitors to our different communities. If you are interested in visiting us for a stay of several days or longer, at one of our locations in the United States (NY, PA, NC, or FL), England, Germany, Australia, or Paraguay, please fill out the form below, and one of our guest coordinators will get in touch soon to help arrange your visit.

The Bruderhof is a living, working intentional community, not a retreat center or spiritual getaway, and during your visit you’ll be hosted by one of our families and participate in our daily life, from joining the workforce to taking part in meals and worship. If you have further questions about a visit, don’t hesitate to ask, or to take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.

Most of our locations have Saturday dinners open to the public; some have weekly Bible studies or church services, too. Many also have seasonal events like Easter services, summer barbecues, harvest festivals, and Christmas caroling. Please get in touch with the Bruderhof community nearest you for further information; to do so, check out our directory detailing our various locations in the eastern United States as well as England, Germany, Australia, and Paraguay.
