About us

As one of Europe's largest and most beautiful youth camps we are pleased to welcome you directly on the banks of Lake Werbellin which is renowned for its excellent water quality.

In his books of travels called “Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg”, 19th century German novelist and poet Theodor Fontane romanticised about the lake:


“It seems like a place in a fairytale where we are sitting because we are sitting on the banks of Lake Werbellin.”                                                                                               


EJB lies on the banks of Lake Werbellin in the the midst of the Biosphere Reserve "Schorfheide/Chorin" (www.schorfheide.de) , the Mark Brandenburg’s largest forested area. This is a perfectly idyllic place in a convenient location. Berlin with its many tourist attractions is only 60 km away. Closer regional attractions in Barnim County include a landscape beautifully shaped by the last Ice Age and numerous appealing sights. Sandy hills, expanded fens, steep basins and deep lakes with crystal-clear water create a feeling of Scandinavia. The pleasant climate with clean air and relatively warm and dry summer months promise an enjoyable stay.


On 105 hectares along the banks of Lake Werbellin, EJB is more than just a place for relaxation and leisure. We can accommodate more than 1,000 guests who enjoy nearly unlimited opportunities for sports, games, leisure activities, education and culture as well as unforgettable nature adventures. On our premises there are many sports and free time activity facilities (such as gym, stadium, beach volleyball courts, fun court and more) as well as conference and seminar facilities which cater to all age and special interest groups and serve to complement our accommodation offers. We also have two modern dining rooms, a restaurant and a snack bar.
