Conference rooms

Amenities for conference guests

For more than 15 years, Hellenthal Youth Hostel has specialised in organising conferences with a buzz: at lofty heights on our own high ropes course or in the woods and meadows nearby, guest can take part in unique outdoor seminars. While climbing the high ropes course, on the team obstacle course in the forest or on a cross-country GPS expedition, creativity, the willingness to communicate and change, the ability to work in a team, and personal responsibility are reinforced. The unfamiliar environment encourages them to explore new avenues and surpass themselves. Consciously recalling the learning experience over the long term will promote identification with common goals and increase motivation.

Six bright conference rooms with the latest conference technology inside the hostel can accommodate up to 140 people and give your seminar or workshop a professional setting.

Turn your conference into an adventure: after a productive day's work in one of the professionally equipped conference rooms, get outside and onto the high ropes course. Hellenthal outdoor centre specialises in outdoor seminars and team-building events.

 Team Events
