Palfen Hermitage

Europe's last inhabited hermitage high up in a rock face of the Palfen, Saalfelden, Salzburg.

Father Raimund lived for 12 years from April to November in the building dating back to 1664 and moves to the monastery St. Lambrecht in Styria when winter conditions become to harsh. Since 2017 a new hermit moved into the cell on the rocks.
