Theravada Buddhist places

I would like to make a visit to some theravada buddhist place, and i tried to find if there is something near Zurich, something that would hold monks also, but i could not find, still i am asking if anyone would know if there is any?

I did find out that there are some other places, temples, in Switzerland and also would like to get info from these if someone has visited, i would be first timer and my german language is not so good, so i would hope that i can manage with english and go into that kind of thing that it would be easy to follow for person like me (foreigner, first timer).

So if anyone has experiences/knowledge to share, please help me out in weekends i do have time for the whole day, so if i need to travel a bit and take part for some hours, its ok also.

thanks a lot,
ladros

No, I've never actually been inside of it. I drove by a couple of times...it's a beautiful looking temple I must say.

Re: Theravada Buddhist places

I'm trying to work up the courage to visit this temple too, Ladros. My German is non-existent!

So it's not so close to Zurich but Kloster Dhammapala is able to welcome English speakers. I'm going to stay in November for a weekend. :-)
