Travel back in time to the Middle Ages - Monschau Castle Youth Hostel

Embark on a journey back to the Middle Age! A rustic ambience, the rough dry stone walls and the location of the castle on a hill overlooking the town will take visitors back to the days of knights and lords. Families in particular appreciate this unique building, because children can let their imagination run wild in secret passages, towers full of nooks and crannies and vaults. Class trips to Monschau Castle also revolve around the theme of medieval knightly virtues and castle secrets: children play the roles of young knights and damsels, train knightly virtues and defend themselves with a slingshot - because the Middle Ages weren't always peaceful! Of course, you don't have do without the modern standards of the 21st century: the castle interior is comfortable and bright - families and school groups can feel at ease in the cosy rooms and enjoy the easy, friendly atmosphere.

Travelling with the family? Then Monschau Castle Youth Hostel offers spacious and bright family apartments in the fully renovated "Hirschhaus". This is where you can enjoy the charm of the Middle Ages in ultramodern apartments, fully equipped with kitchen and private bathroom.

From Monschau Castle, you can enjoy a unique view of the old town and its romantic streets. All the attractions of the Eifel National Park and the Hohes Venn-Eifel Nature Park are within easy reach. Whether you're with the family or the whole class, pack your rubber boots and discover unspoilt high fens, a diverse flora and fauna and impressive natural landscapes.
