: it's a steep climb to reach the st. georg hermitage high above the austrian town of saalfelden. thomas fieglmuller knows this path like the back of his hand. he trod it many times when he lived in the hermitage. he was first a priest, then became a psychotherapist. until he was drawn to the remote cliffside. mr. fieglmuller: an avalanche, possibly with rocks, has obviously destroyed part of this fence and swept away big portions of the ground. reporter: winter up in the mountains can be dangerous. the st. georg hermitage is inhabited only during the summer months. it's an almost 400-year long tradition. fieglmuller lived here, too. now, he's returned to help select a successor. he's overcome with nostalgia when he reaches the modest living quarters. mr. fieglmuller: this here is the bedroom. it's a very simple bed with a drawer underneath for the bedding. and here is the rope for ringing the bell. reporter: the hermitage, perched atop a steep cliff, affords a stunning view. the original hermits selected a beautiful spot to establish their cloister. mr. fieglmuller: you get to leave the
