Location & Directions

Mosbach lies between the metropolitan areas of Heidelberg, Mannheim, Heilbronn and Würzburg, where the Elz flows into the Neckar and nestles in a recreational landscape with vast forests and scenic meadow valley. The 1,200 year-old town centre, with its numerous beautiful half-timbered houses, is a popular tourist destination. The Neckarelz Concentration Camp Memorial is about 5 minutes away. The youth hostel, completed in 1995, is west of the town centre, in the Neckarelz district, on the southern bank of the River Elz. 5 different wings of the building are partially integrated into the building fabric of a historic mill.
