Corporate Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is in our DNA and plays a central role in our organisation. For example, by organising your corporate event or meeting with us, you support the important of work of YMCA Netherlands.





In 1694, the estate on which Hotel Ernst Sillem Hoeve is located was purchased by Justus van Ewijck for an amount of 100 rexdaelders. Later in 1871, Prince William Frederick Henry of Orange-Nassau built a house for his overseer on this same estate, called ‘Prins Hendrik Oord’. On its opposite side, stables and a beautiful coach house were erected. Some 50 years later, on 3 May 1926, this coach house was bought by the Nederlandsch Jongelings Verbond (CJV/YMCA Netherlands) as a country house and named Ernst Sillem Hoeve.
