Service for music groups: The bon ton makes the music!

Facilities for wheelchair users

At refurbishment and new construction works we are taking care since years of an accessible designing of the houses. Most of the Music Youth Hostels are suitable for wheelchair users and are equipped with appropriate rooms and baths. Please let us know with your booking about the number of wheelchair users amongst your participants, so that we are able to dispose.


So that your rehearsal stay will proceed perfectly, we will advise you already ahead of your stay. Our on-site teams will gladly give suggestions on range and figuration of the rooms, as well as on  the planning of the catering and the leisure time activities.


You can book your rehearsal stay directly at the house of your choice- most rapidly by phone, e-mail or fax. On demand you can arrange a consulting- or viewing date or send a reservation request.


Either if you always wanted to go on a great journey with the music-making classroom, stay overnight in a castle or condition your theatre troup for the upcoming  premiere: in the DJH-Service-Center we will inform you about excess capacities of the youth hostels, programm offers and leisure time possibilities on-site or send further prospects. Even if you don`t know already, where the journey will take you- our competent DJH-Service-Team will rapidly find an appropriate 

youth hostel and will receive your booking.

Leisure Time

Our houses are not just offering the ideal starting basis for intensive rehearsal, but also many possibilities for leisure time activities in between the rehearsal phases: action on the high rope course, at the ping-pong table, during the run through the forest or recreation in the wellness area of the youth hostel. Maybe you like to party a wee bit? Many of the houses are equipped with a discotheque room- alternatively often on-site bistros or the open-hearth fireplace are inviting to an exchange of ideas.

Internal and external rehearsal rooms

Varied rehearsal possibilities are adjusted to the size of the company: 25 sqm for the string quartet and 120 sqm for the choir, awesome premises like the hall of knights at castle Blankenheim or the on-site amphitheatre of the youth hostel Bad Honnef are there at your disposal as well. A new offer is the restored former castle chapel for up to 80 persons, usable as a concert- or celebration hall or a rehearsal room. For bigger groups there are -in close proximity to the youth hostel- many external highlights: entertainment halls and outdoor stages, gyms and auditoriums are perfect musical locations for gigs or final rehearsals. Please contact us, we will take care of individual rehearsal conditions under the motto: arriving, feeling well, making music!


In the national park Eifel or directly at the river Rhein: All of the houses are located in a quiet surrounding and are mostly reachable well by public transport or with the own car. Parking places are at your disposal right beside the houses or in close proximity. You will find detailed travel information on the internet sides of the respective youth hostels.


The Deutsche Jugendherbergswerk (DJH) is a registered association. To utilise the offers of our houses you require the DJH-group-membership for your orchestra, choir or music group. Your benefit: Not every single participant of your event needs a personal membership.  Please contact the DJH-Service-Center to apply for the DJH membership-card fast and uncomplicated.

Business Hours

Many of our youth hostels are permanently manned, in the others music groups will receive a key.  The opening hours of the desks  are diversified from house to house, you can find the exact times in the respective discriptions of the hostels.


The right catering makes a contribution to a successful rehearsal experience all around. Our kitchen-teams are attuned to a varied meal offer. You should approach special catering wishes already with the planning of your stay in one of the Music Youth Hostels, so that they can be geared to the schedule of your rehearsal phases. Our kitchen-team is trying hard to satisfy vegetarian or religious caused meal wishes as well.


You will stay overnight in 4- or 6 bedrooms, often equipped with separate shower and toilet. If available you are able to book single- or double bedrooms for an upcharge. The light and friendly rooms are generating best preconditions for new musical challenges. Every single group will be accomodated in its own room, single rooms will be provided for the group leaders without an additional charge.
