As a core area of the Southeast-Rügen Biosphere Reserve, the Isle of Vilm is apart from the buildings of the branch office untilled. Office and administration buildings as well as the guest houses shape the settled part of the “Great Vilm”.

The Isle of Vilm offers outstanding conditions for fruitful seminars, workshops, conferences or retreats. The picturesque isle with its ancient woods inspired already numerous artists 200 years ago and still fascinates to this day. The facilities of INA on the car-free isle are ideal for an undisturbed and productive work in direct contact with nature. Modern technology, several group rooms and an excellent cuisine as well as cultural opportunities guarantee good working conditions.
