Conference rooms

Amenities for conference guests

Idyllic and undisturbed - in old Grafenberg Castle, conference guests will find ideal conditions for successful conferences and workshops. Not only the exceptional ambiance of the ancient castle, but also the three spacious conference rooms of "Vogtei", "Knappensaal" and "Rüstkammer" will turn your conferences into something special. Although the mediaeval atmosphere is evident throughout the castle, you won't miss anything: the rooms are bright and comfortable, and the conference rooms come with modern seminar and media technology.

Do you want to do something after a tiring seminar day? Discover the natural beauty of the Eifel National Park and enjoy the many recreational opportunities nearby. Or benefit from Seminar Service Plus: in cooperation with our partner "Natur bewegt", the hostel team has developed specific action modules for conference groups. The timing, duration and objective are decided on in consultation with the seminar leader. Team-training, role-playing or concentration exercises – you decide what's right for your group.

A romantic castle, the varied landscape of the northern Eifel and modern conference facilities - Burg Blankenheim Youth Hostel is the ideal place for both professional and inspired work.

Seminar Service Plus

The ambience of Burg Blankenheim Youth Hostel offers an authentic setting for a variety of workshop or seminar supplements. In cooperation with our partner "Natur bewegt", the hostel team has developed modules designed specifically for conference groups. Their task is to promote each individual's bodily awareness and ability to concentrate, to actively support the team-building process within the group, and to offer space for long-term community experiences.

The timing and duration, focus and target are always redefined from one event to the next, because as a seminar leader, you know what would be best for your event:

  • Team training: archery or climbing
  • Cooperative games: drama or role playing
  • Barbecue or midnight snack
