Off to the countryside

The surrounding

For many people Essen is the metropolis in the Ruhr area. Pupils on a class trip, group- as well as independent travellers and especially also families have already discovered the vibrant city for themselves. Here one comes upon impressing monuments of the industrial history, a lively cultural scene and -at the “European Green Capital 2017“ especially a lot of nature. Our house is located directly at the local recreation area around the Baldeneysee, with its varied leisure opportunities. It`s an ideal starting point for excursions- go on a cycle-tour, book a surfing course, chill at the Seaside Beach or visit the famous Villa Hügel and the UNESCO world heritage Zeche Zollverein.

Our house

Comfortable and modern- that`s the way our house in the countryside presents itself. All of the friendly designed rooms are equipped with shower and toilet. As a host for creative meetings, our house is your partner for successful seminars, interesting workshops and thrilling team-events. Conference attendees will find optimal circumstances in the five modern equipped conference rooms. The bistro, the sun patio and the barbecue place are popular meeting points; a match at the table football or on the football ground are providing sportive variety. The interesting programmes of the youth hostel Essen are, due to their cultural topics, very popular. Cyclists are glad about the service of a “bed&bike“ youth hostel.
