Group facilities

Our group facilities are simple but well-equipped and of high quality. All three freestanding buildings are made of wood and are situated in nature, offering open views to the surrounding woods and/or Sun Meadow. With their natural materials, restful colors and plenty of incoming daylight they all radiate a refreshing clarity.

In total, these three wooden buildings contain four training/conference halls: the Lariks (187 m²), the Tormentil/Wederik (80/45 m²) and the Gentiaan (108 m²). 

Apart from their main hall, all group facilities include an entrance hall with coat racks and a hallway with toilets, showers and open storage spaces for luggage.
