Portrait

Emden Youth Hostel can be found in an idyllic setting right next to the Kesselschleuse lock within the medieval town fortifications. On request, school groups and families can spend the night in genuine lock servants' quarters - newly renovated and right by the water. The centre of Emden is just 15 minutes away on foot. Explore the area by bike, canoe or Canadian canoe. The open-air pool is just next door, while the East Frisian Islands are virtually on your doorstep. The birthplace of actor Otto Waalkes, the town of Emden is also a paradise for art lovers. Be amazed by the Classical Modern artworks at the Kunsthalle Emden. Live like the lock servants once did - only in more comfort: Since 2011, our completely restored "Schleusenknechtehaus" ("lock servants' quarters") has been available as accommodation for our guests. With 36 beds, it's ideal for school groups and families. Located in the immediate vicinity of our main guest house, it is also right next to the only round lock of its kind in Europe. What's more, expect a great view, as views of the water are guaranteed!
