    Core Subject: Retreat Leader

    Katrin is the founder of Sonnenfels Retreats and also the retreat leader. As a renowned personal & business coach since 2015, she founded The Best Possible You where she offers life, leadership and startup coaching since 2018. This is also when she quit her corporate job as a senior sales manager in a large multinational tech company in order to follow her passion. She spent the last 12 years living and working abroad with her master's degree in international business and would love to host you to recharge with this truly Bavarian experience in the retreat house, where she actually grew up in.

Location

The retreat takes place in Bodenmais, the award winning holiday destination in the Bavarian Forest national park in Germany. The village is situated at 750m above sea level and is surrounded by a primeval pine forest and mountains like the Silberberg (955m) or Großer Arber (1456m).

Bodenmais is certified as an air spa thanks to its exceptional air quality that facilitates wellbeing and a healthy body. It is one of the most sought after spa, wellness and retreat locations in Bavaria with its green landscapes.​
