Depending on the time of year, the picturesque Kinderalm attracts hikers and snow-shoe walkers, and it is the versatile paths in idyllic natural surroundings that they appreciate. Often these tours proceed right past the Sisters of Bethlehem convent. The ‘Maria im Paradies’ convent, set up in 1985 has in the meantime gained 30 nuns, financing itself through the convent shop in the lower part of the building complex which is accessible to the public. Maria im Paradies is regularly visited by pilgrims who share the complete tranquillity and solitude on the Kinderalm for a few days. The so-called ‘upper building area’ is solely reserved for the sisters as a retreat.
