The Youth Hostel is located in wooded surroundings on the outskirts of town, ten minutes away from the town centre.
At Frauenstein Youth Hostel we don't just place an emphasis on art and culture in our activity programmes. These aspects are also reflected in the Hostel itself as well as in the large, lovingly designed outdoor area.
Recently refurbished, this Youth Hostel has 85 beds, most of them in two to six-bed rooms, including six family rooms (25 beds in total) and eight rooms for group leaders. There is also a wooden summer house with one three-bed room and one six-bed room, with en-suite shower/WC. Guests can also enjoy a dining room, an open terrace, a playroom, two barbecue areas, the artistically designed outdoor area (approx. 2 ha), which has a barbecue hut, skittles alley, creative room, cable car, and water and sand play area. For conferences, seminars and project weeks there are four function rooms (2x 20 people, 1x 30 people, 1x 65 people) including seminar equipment (screen, overhead projector). Music lovers can use an accordion, piano and guitar. Riders and their horses are most welcome in our very own horse riding station, which has ties, a tack room, paddock and a hay store.
