The retreat will take place at Radhadesh in Luxembourg, Belgium. The earliest record found about the castle dates back to the 11th century. It is said that in 1065, the owner of the castle, Gozelon de Montaigu, plundered the property of the Abbey of Saint Hubert. When he died, his widow, feeling guilty about her husband’s misbehavior, offered the castle, the church, and her subjects to the Abbey of Saint-Hubert. As a result, the area then belonged to the bishop of Liege. Later in the same century, the castle became part of a defensive territory.

This facility started with one room that would work with a local doctor and the regional palliative care team. The ISKCON Radhadesh Chateau complex is also a place for learning ancient Hindu Vedic literature. It houses a college where higher studies are imparted to students who come from across Europe. Traditional Hindu culture is also evident from the nice pure vegetarian food served at the restaurant, traditional clothes, and other cultural artifacts available for sale in this community.
