Social responsibility

Regional value creation
In general we assign contracts based on the regionalism principle. The craftsmen and companies we work with come from the local region or the land Baden-Wuerttemberg. This ensures a vital regional value creation, it maintains jobs and know-how in the land.

Furnitures from inclusive workshops
Again and again we award contracts to inclusive workshops. So the entire furniture of the Martin-Buber- Youth Hostel Ueberlingen and the Youth Hostel Veitsburg Ravensburg as well as half of the furniture of the youth hostel Mannheim come from the inclusive Workshop Liebenau Berufsbildungswerk gGmbH in Baden-Wuerttemberg, for example.


Barrier-free travel
At the moment 17 of our youth hostels are designed according to the needs of people with disabilities. These youth hostels have an elevator and or step-free access, wheelchair-accessible rooms and toilets as well as stepless access to common rooms and lounges. Many of these youth hostels are located in common travel destinations. They are characterised by the disabled symbol. You will find them on the internet and in all printed brochures of the regional association.
