Leisure time sports and group experiences in the nature are playing a lead role at our youth hostel. Therefore, especially families and sportsman are feeling well here. Survival-training, raft construction and thrilling campaign-days are generating a lot of fun. In the extensive forests around the Rur-lake or in the close-by Hohes Venn, one can excellent hike or cycle- but wonderful routes can naturally also be find in the national park Eifel. The lake itself supplies a varied offer of aquatic sports such as sailing, canoe ride, surfing or swimming.
Our youth hostel is the ideal destination for all of the action- and adventure fans. The 8 metres high climbing tower, the high rope course with 15 stations and our canoe rides are real highlights in the Eifel-holiday. Especially pupils on a class trip and conference attendees love the challenges and team-experiences of the diverse outdoor-activities. Self-evidently, there`s always something going on on the huge outdoor-area- on three grounds football, volleyball and basketball is possible. And if it`s once raining? No problem at all: our movie-room for kids, billiard- and football table are supplying even then best entertainment! By the way: our house is a “bed&bike“ accommodation and was certified by the ADFC ( Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrad-Club e.V.) as a cycle-friendly house.
