Visit Campus

International Headquarters of the TS


NOTE: "In view of the Coronavirus epidemic, visits to the TS campus during visiting hours stand suspended until further noticed"

Kindly appreciate the surroundings by walking and speaking calmly.
Entering into the sacred surroundings of Nature and the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society (TS) is a special thing and we expect behaviour like in an Ashram. The Campus has had a significant meaning and influence since its Founders first arrived here in 1882.
  1. Respect and observe the flora and fauna by letting them be in their natural existence. No plucking of flowers. No hanging from the trees.
  2. Help us to keep the place clean. We have dustbins all around the campus.
  3. Listen to the silence in you and around you when walking on the paths calmly, without rushing.
  4. Capture Nature with your eyes and ears. Commercial or social (weddings, parties etc) photographing is not allowed.

The visitors' map indicates the most important points of interest. Enjoy further exploration of the Campus via the Explore dropdown menu on this website.
