Wittenberg Youth Hostel - modern ambience in historic walls

Where else can you sleep at a world heritage site? All Saint's Church and its door, onto which Luther nailed his 95 theses, is right next to the Youth Hostel. Far from noise and also centrally located, our hostel offers an ideal starting point for your activities. You can reach all various historic sites and interesting buildings in Wittenberg easily.

Because of our 7 conference rooms and habitable rooms, as well as our shared rooms (2-6 beds) with en suite bathrooms, our house is particularly suitable for school classes, seminar groups and families. Five rooms are suitable for wheelchair users. The elevator allow a pleasant stay for guests with limited mobility.

UNESCO World heritage: the Reformation, the Garden Kingdom and a nature reserve

Martin Luther and the dawn of the Protestant Reformation are very close connected with the city of Wittenberg. Various Luther and Melanchthon memorial sites in the city were added to the UNESCO world heritage list. In 2017 500 years of reformation are celebrated all over Germany, for this reason many interesting exhibitions and events take place in Witenberg.

Wittenberg is also a great starting point for outings to the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Kingdom and the Middle Elbe biosphere reserve - both are protected by UNESCO, too.
