Interaction between history and the present


House Across Borders

Historical discovery – international encounter – active commemoration

The international youth meeting and training center House Across Borders is a youth hostel offering historical, social, and political education programs as part of the German War Graves Commission (German: Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge). It was opened in 1993 near the German military cemetery in Lommel, where 39,111 people are buried who were killed in, predominately, the Second World War.

We are happy to provide our guests with an insightful and comfortable stay. Hospitality and warmth are key – and good food too. Welcome!
