Many music groups return to Brüggen Youth Hostel year after year, because here they can rehearse in a relaxed, quiet atmosphere and enjoy - besides the Lower Rhine joie de vivre – excellent service. It's not only the 2 rehearsal rooms that can be used – the hostel's entrance hall also offers excellent acoustics. Are you coming with a large group? Then take advantage of the Youth Hostel EXCLUSIVE offer and book the hostel for your sole use. This way, you'll have additional rooms for individual rehearsals at your disposal!

After a successful rehearsal, you'll need to relax. The Maas-Schwalm-Nette Nature Park invites guests to take part in various outdoor activities and enjoy a pleasant walk in the fresh air. On a free day, go on a trip to the Netherlands – the border's just a few kilometres away!

Are you planning to stay here to rehearse? The hostel's service team would be happy to help you plan your stay. This means you can fix your rehearsal times, leisure activities and mealtimes in line with your rehearsal schedule in advance and experience a relaxing time throughout your entire stay at the hostel.

Rehearse in peace with excellent acoustics! Brüggen Youth Hostel is popular with choirs and music groups; after all, the hostel is one of 15 Music Hostels in the Rhineland and is specialised in meeting the specific needs of young musicians. Located in the middle of nature, there is a variety of recreational activities around the hostel for enjoying a well-deserved rest and gathering inspiration after a long rehearsal.

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.

You should discuss with us any special dietary requirements when planning your stay so that your wishes can be incorporated into your rehearsal schedule. We are flexible. That's why our kitchen team will also try to comply with any vegetarian or religious dietary requirements as far as possible.
