Conference rooms

Amenities for conference guests

Welcome to a natural centre of learning: the special needs of conference participants were taken into account when the hostel was constructed. Comfortable rooms with private bathroom and toilet, modern conference rooms with a unique ambiance and professional conference equipment offer the best conditions in which to conduct your conference. Seven bright and airy conference rooms up to 82 m2 in size are available – five of which are wheelchair-accessible. It's never monotonous here, because all the rooms have a unique view of the beautiful Eifel landscape – sometimes from a different perspective. From the "Luchsbau" ("Lynx's Lair") room, guests look into the woods across the forest floor. This is the view you imagine a forest-dweller might enjoy when sitting in his cave!

During the breaks, you can gaze into the distance from the observation deck on the roof of the hostel – which will give you new ideas and foster concentration.

Hold your conference in the "Dungeon" or "Lynx's Lair" - Nideggen Youth Hostel offers a total of 7 conference rooms with a distinctive ambience. Different active modules provide guests with an individual and varied range of leisure time activities to complement the conference.

Seminar Service Plus

In cooperation with its partners, the new hostel has developed active components that have been specifically tailored to the needs of seminar participants. Surrounded by a unique natural landscape, outdoor training modules ensure a playful combination of team building and experiences in the natural world. Not only movement but also social learning and the growth fostered by events that give participants a sense of achievement promote creativity and foster individual responsibility.

The hostel would be happy to put together a programme package to suit your needs. That's why you have a say in when it comes to the content, timing and framework of the programme's elements:

  • Rock climbing on the natural cliffs in Nideggen: climbing routes from easy to challenging
  • Introduction to canoeing: along the Rurstausee reservoir with subsequent theoretical and practical introduction to the reservoir.
  • Canoeing on the Rur river: after some theoretical instruction, participants go downriver from Heimbach to Zerkall (available 15 July- 31 Oct.).
