So that your training gets the impact you have in mind.

Training location in nature

Our sustainable meeting location is located in the middle of the peace and vastness of the authentic Groningen landscape near the city of Groningen. Here you can still hear the grass grow and contemplate beautiful starry skies. Our unique outdoor location can make a valuable contribution to creative processes.

In our park-like landscaped garden you can wander, relax or dive into the outdoor sauna. Here on ‘het Veen’, as the Veenweg residents put it, you regularly see special scenes. Turkeys on a trip, a hare that comes to neighborhoods or a deer that passes by in the early morning. From the location you can walk with vast horizons and the wind in your hair. A short distance away is the beautiful Schildmeer and the Roegwoldt.

Respect for nature is self-evident for us and we allow ourselves to be inspired by new possibilities every time.
