It is best to book as early as possible - but no later than 2 weeks before your requested date. We will send you a registration form for your booking, which you can return by e-mail, fax or post.

We always ask you to register and consult us in advance so that we can ensure that a stay on your desired date is possible.

Bed linen and towels can be rented from us for a fee. You are welcome to bring your own bed linen and towels. The use of sleeping bags is not permitted for hygienic reasons. Hygiene products such as shampoo, shower gel and soap are not provided by us and should therefore be in your luggage. As our facility is located in a nature reserve, we recommend that you bring mosquito repellent for outdoors during the summer months.

You can only pay for your stay on site in cash. Groups will receive an invoice which they can pay within 14 days to the bank account of JBS Lommel, stating the invoice number.

Our WiFi is available free of charge in the entrance area and in the seminar rooms. There is only partial WLAN reception in the guest rooms.

We offer three main meals for groups: Breakfast from 8:00 am to 9:00 am, lunch from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm and an evening meal, which is prepared for you so that you can decide when you want to eat this meal. By arrangement, meal times can also be adapted to your needs and offered at other times. Our facility also has a vending machine for drinks. There is also a public restaurant in our building, Café Hof ten Vrede, which offers food and drinks from 9.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. and can also be available for your group in the evening by prior arrangement.

The barbecue evening by the fireplace is very popular with our guests. If you book a barbecue evening, there is no meal in the dining room for this evening. The barbecue will be prepared by us and the kitchen staff will show you where the barbecue food and salads are ready for you.

The bedrooms and group rooms must be left swept clean by 10.00 a.m. on the day of departure. The group rooms and our leisure area are also available to you on the day of departure until your actual departure.

Once you have made a binding booking for your preferred date, we will be happy to contact you and submit a program proposal with workshops on historical-political education and leisure activities.

Our programs are led by qualified employees. They are the contact persons for the participants during the seminar. The teachers/supervisors have different roles depending on the program. They can observe individual elements of the program or stand ready to take on a supervisory role if required.

Yes, you can also book the seminar rooms at JBS Lommel for your own events by prior arrangement. Seminar equipment such as laptops, projectors and speakers can be hired from us for a fee.
