The best venues for off-site meetings in Europe
Off-site meetings are a meaningful way to show your appreciation, reward employees for a job well done – and provide a morale boost.
Giving staff the chance to relax and interact in beautiful, stylish surroundings can also help create new connections and break down barriers.
If you’re wondering where to hold your next off-site, here are our top five luxury venues in Europe:

This newly renovated, luxury lifestyle hotel (formerly the Alcron Hotel Prague) has 204 rooms including plenty of suites – and is just steps away from Prague’s old town and Wenceslas Square.
The cobbled streets and colourful buildings of Prague’s old town will take your guests’ breath away.
It’s also just 1km from the main train station and 16km from Vaclav Havel Prague Airport (a journey of just 30 mins).
The Almanac X Alcron Prague has nine conference rooms for you to choose from, plus the glass-roofed Crystal Ballroom if you’re planning a larger gathering of up to 200 guests and want plenty of natural daylight.
