Welcome to our house

Youth Education Centre

The European Youth Education Center is located in the Villa Böckelmann, a historic neo-renaissance building in the district of Ottersleben, in the very south of the state capital Magdeburg. Surrounded by an English landscape park and equipped with a spacious garden, this special place offers our guests an ideal setting for exchange, educational work and joint learning.

Living & Learning

Large and small groups will find a place to sleep in our 130+ beds in apartments on the top floor of the villa and in the attached guesthouse. Seven large and small, modernly equipped seminar rooms provide space for a variety of activities - from hybrid meetings to workshops to international conventions featuring simultaneous interpreting.

International cuisine

We are particularly proud of our in-house international kitchen team. With fresh ideas and high quality ingredients, they provide our guests with dishes to suit every taste each day. Healthy vegetarian, vegan and pork-free options are a standard part of our menu.
