Celebrate and enjoy

Eat, drink and be merry: you can do this wonderfully in our youth hostels – at a very reasonable price. From weddings to family celebrations and birthdays or time away with good friends, we are at your disposal for a range of needs. Many of our beautiful locations are well situated and surrounded by greenery. Our offer ranges from festive spaces and catering through to rooms, meaning you can even round off the party with an overnight stay in our accommodation. 


Our youth hostels are as individual as your party! Be it an historic castle or palace, a romantic Art Nouveau house or something a bit more modern, we have approximately 50 very individual locations. We also offer a wide range of spaces for the event: gardens, terraces, ballrooms or restaurants. For all outdoor locations we can always offer an alternative in case of bad weather. In addition, exclusive rentals allow you to spread out throughout the house in a very flexible way. All our youth hostels offer great accommodation for guests with different room categories


Aperitif with snacks, coffee and cake, barbecue or classic banquet: we will serve you the perfect menu for your occasion. In consultation with us, you can choose what we serve you. Depending on the location, outside catering or self-catering is also available as an option. Organize your event with us.
