Making music & lakeside flair

Xanten Youth Hostel offers choirs and musical groups everything that's necessary for a successful stay and rehearsal – and a little bit more. Nine bright rehearsal rooms – many with relaxing views of the Südsee lake – offer choirs and ensembles ideal rehearsal conditions thanks to their excellent acoustics. Is your group particularly large? Two of the rooms can be combined, resulting in a rehearsal space of 188 m² for up to 140 people. This means that even complex music projects can be carried out with no problems.

The hostel team has had many years of experience in dealing with choirs and music groups. We recommend you talk to your personal contact even before you arrive! This means you can fix your rehearsal times, leisure activities and mealtimes in line with the rehearsal schedule in advance and experience a relaxing time throughout your entire stay at the hostel.

The area around the youth hostel makes a big contribution towards the perfect rehearsal experience, its proximity to Xanten's Südsee lake offers an inspiring working atmosphere and varied recreational opportunities during the breaks or after work. Beach volleyball, water skiing or just relaxing in the sun - everybody will find the perfect way to relax after an exhausting rehearsal.

Allow your gaze to occasionally linger on the views across Südsee lake and, after you've done your work, enjoy diverse leisure facilities. That's the fun way to rehearse!

Service

  • The hostel is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • The reception is continuously open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • People over the age of 18 will receive a front door key
  • The youth hostel team would be happy to help you plan your stay

Food

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.
