Memorial with an innovative media project
In 2002, Ravensbrück Youth Hostel - International Youth Meeting Centre was set up in the female guards' houses of the former women's concentration camp. For 10 years now, our hostel has been a venue for conference and seminar groups and a place of learning for schools and groups interested in getting to grips with this history. Due to its special history, our institution serves a place of commemoration, enquiry, comprehension and understanding. In cooperation with the Brandenburg Memorial Foundation and the educational services of the Ravensbrück Memorial, the youth hostel offers standardized and individual thematic projects. These are the highlights of Ravensbrück Youth Hostel
  • International Youth Meeting Centre for conferences, seminars and media projects
  • Scenic landscape of Fürstenberg and Mecklenburg Lake Districts
  • Father Christmas is at home in the nearby town of Himmelpfort.
