Board & lodging
On the beautiful, spacious grounds of Hof Oberlethe in Oldenburg (Lower Saxony) you can settle inside yourself, switch off and relax.
The place is ideal for large retreats. In 2016, the Celebrate Life Festival will be held here for the 11th time. Correspondingly, the seminar house has grown and has been substantially expanded based on the special needs of this festival. In the house and on the large outdoor area with a lake, there is space for groups of up to 1000 people in rooms of various categories, in dormitories, as well as in tents and campers.
The price for accommodation and meals at Hof Oberlethe varies between € 45 and € 88 (depending whether in a tent, dormitory or room). This includes full vegetarian board. The price for children/youths is reduced, and children under the age of 4 are free of charge.
There is also the possibility to rent caravans with 2 or four beds at the lakeside . Find friends and book a caravan together. Prices range from € 350 to € 450 for a complete caravan.

The kitchen is set up for large-scale events and conjures up vegetarian delicacies three times a day. Tea and coffee are available during the entire day and are included in the price.
