About this project

Nestli has the concern that people can experience a fulfilled life in the relationship to God. We have especially traumatized people at our heart. We offer pastoral care, counseling, Christian therapy and pastoral seminars as well as education and training for counselors and therapists.


Our house in Kleinried, Bechhofen, is a place of security, an encounter with each other, a place where God can be experienced, a place of hope and restoration. Here people who want to pause in their daily lives, who have become tired, need spiritual food, advice and guidance, can rest, recharge their batteries, learn new things, and experience contact with God. They are to be strengthened and encouraged, in order to be able to "restart and fly" again. Directly on the Altmühl river and in an unspoiled position, you can enjoy the tranquility of nature, you can relax on walks or you can meet animals, e.g. our Alpaca herd or horses.

Nestli also wants to be a meeting place for therapists and pastoral counselors, who want to deepen their knowledge, gain experience and take new impulses for their work. In doing so, shared experiences, exchanges with each other and periods of relaxation are very valuable. For this Nestli offers a loving place. Just when you have to learn and digest "heavy food", the good and healthy food is an important compensation.


Nestli e.V. is a non-profit association, our house is in rent at the moment. Now we would like to acquire the Nestli house and thus make it available in the long term for the work with traumatized people and for the training and further education of Christian-oriented counselors and therapists. We plan also to expand the house to have sufficient space for future events and seminars.
With your donation you make a double contribution: You directly support traumatized people who need healing, but you also help to equip helpers, pastors, counselors and therapists.
