Conference- and rehearsal rooms

Amenities for conference guests

Simple but sophisticated – at Xanten Youth Hostel, conference guests will find upscale conference facilities and a maritime flair. Ten modern conference rooms – many with views of Südsee lake – are available for up to 180 guests. Modern conference equipment and Internet access in all conference rooms guarantee the best possible working conditions.

During the breaks, you can breathe deeply on the terrace overlooking Südsee lake or in the hostel's bright courtyard and enjoy the peace and quiet there. In the evening, conference guests can meet up in the hostel's own bistro to enjoy a sociable end to the day. Do you want to offer your seminar group something special? Then use the Seminar Service Plus. The Südsee lake, the Adventure Park Xanten and the leisure centre that's very close to the hostel offer various possibilities for a varied programme of events. Whether surfing, water skiing or on a high ropes course – your team will learn to work together effectively or develop solution strategies. The team at the youth hostel will be happy to put together a tailored programme for you.

Conferences with views of Südsee lake - the hostel's location is not only attractive to water sports fans, but also to conference guests who want an inspiring and yet professional atmosphere.

Seminar Service Plus

The Südsee lake, the Adventure Park Xanten and the leisure centre in the immediate vicinity of the hostel are the venues for an ambitious social programme geared towards seminar and conference guests. Trained water instructors or outdoor trainers accompany the activities of the seminar groups. With plenty of action on the ground, on the water and at high altitudes, the team will successfully learn how to work together, how to cope with risky situations and how to develop solution strategies.

On request, we can put together a customised social programme for you from a variety of experiential educational programme modules:

  • Water sports light: pedalos, windsurfing, sailing dinghy or water skiing?
  • Culinary specials: barbecue, pizza party or a cosy evening in the barbecue hut (weekends only)

Food

When it comes to meals, we attach great importance to a wide variety and fresh produce. Lunch and dinner are served buffet-style and snacks such as coffee and cake complement the extensive range of catering options. We are happy to take special vegetarian and religious dietary requirements into account.

On request:

  • Hot and cold buffets
  • Special themed buffets
  • Pasta or Greek dishes (for an additional charge)
  • Flexible mealtimes are possible. Discuss your dietary requirements with the hostel's team when planning your stay.

Xanten Youth Hostel offers choirs and musical groups everything that's necessary for a successful stay and rehearsal – and a little bit more. Nine bright rehearsal rooms – many with relaxing views of the Südsee lake – offer choirs and ensembles ideal rehearsal conditions thanks to their excellent acoustics. Is your group particularly large? Two of the rooms can be combined, resulting in a rehearsal space of 188 m² for up to 140 people. This means that even complex music projects can be carried out with no problems.

The hostel team has had many years of experience in dealing with choirs and music groups. We recommend you talk to your personal contact even before you arrive! This means you can fix your rehearsal times, leisure activities and mealtimes in line with the rehearsal schedule in advance and experience a relaxing time throughout your entire stay at the hostel.

The area around the youth hostel makes a big contribution towards the perfect rehearsal experience, its proximity to Xanten's Südsee lake offers an inspiring working atmosphere and varied recreational opportunities during the breaks or after work. Beach volleyball, water skiing or just relaxing in the sun - everybody will find the perfect way to relax after an exhausting rehearsal.

Allow your gaze to occasionally linger on the views across Südsee lake and, after you've done your work, enjoy diverse leisure facilities. That's the fun way to rehearse!

The right food makes an important contribution to a generally successful rehearsal experience. Our kitchen team has responded to this challenge with a varied range of meals: all the food that's served is healthy, light and always tasty.
