Leisure activities

Activities for guests of Altleiningen Youth Hostel

Altleiningen is situated in the "Leininger Land", an offshoot of the Palatinate Forest, which descends into the land of the Rhine Valley at Neuleinigen. Sprawling, beautiful woodland surrounds the little village. Hikers are spoilt for choice thanks to the many well-signposted woodland trails. Comprising 60 stages, one woodland trail gives walkers an insight into local fauna and flora, hunting and forestry. Rotsteig game reserve is well worth a visit, as are the many wine-growers in the surrounding area.
