Out of the classroom and into nature

Primary school trips


Out of the classroom and into nature. It's just so much more fun to discover things with our school friends: Playing around during the day and taking stock of the day's events in your bunk bed at night. The selection of activities is huge, ranging from experiencing howling wolves, learning how to sculpt, team training sessions to project days dedicated to renewable energies. It's a great experience for both primary school pupils and their teachers alike.

These are the main appeals of Güstrow Youth Hostel:

  • Primary school trips to remember!
  • Have a wonderful holiday in the nature reserve of the Mecklenburg Lake District
  • Ideal conditions for holding conferences and seminars
  • Discover author and sculptor Ernst Barlach

The Hostel grounds are idyllically located against the backdrop of the silent forest and Inselsee lake, close to the exciting city centre.

Rostock, Schwerin and Müritz lake aren't far. Creative powers unfold in the region. Ernst Barlach's work is proof of that - most of his writings, drawings and sculptures were created here.
