Thale Youth Hostel in the Bode Valley

Peacefully located at the entrance to the Bode Valley, between the jagged canyons of the "Roßtrappe" and the famous "Hexentanzplatz" (Witches’ Dance Floor) you’ll find the Thale Youth Hostel. The unique location of our hostel allows you to relax and enjoy while taking in all the sights and stories. Our 2- to 6- bed rooms, in addition to our numerous common rooms, offer ideal accommodation for nearly everyone. You can comfortably reach the "devilish sights" of the “Hexentanxplatz“ by foot or by cable car. 

World of legends and myths

Witches are the symbol of the city of Thale, but you won’t just encounter them once a year at the spring "Walpurgis" festival, on the "Hexentanzplatz". If you keep your eyes open on a hike through the craggy Bode Valley, you might just come to understand what’s behind the old stories and legends. Eerie stone formations such as the "Teufelsmauer" (Devil’s Wall) make this region a uniquely mysterious landscape. You can easily get to know the culture of our region as well as its many myths and legends.

The unique location of this hostel and the family atmosphere combine to offer each guest a memorable stay. Welcome to the Bode Valley – and welcome to the world of legends and myths.
