Hanseatic city of Greifswald

Hanseatic city of Greifswald

Three large church towers greet you from afar, welcoming you to the Hanseatic city of Greifswald. There is plenty to experience here: nature, history, culture and sport - practically right in front of your doorstep. The most famous citizen of this city was Caspar David, famed for his romantic landscape paintings. History plays an important role in the city of Greifswald.

The university is one of the oldest in Europe and you can see the Hanseatic era is architecturally reflected in many of the buildings. It is but a few minutes' walk from the Youth Hostel to the picturesque historic city centre. There is plenty of beautiful architecture to admire along the Brick Gothic architecture route or you may choose instead to reminisce in front of the paintings in the Pommeranian State Museum (Pommersches Landesmuseum). The Hanseatic City of Greifswald is definitely worth a visit.

These are the main appeals of Greifswald Youth Hostel:

  • Maritime flair of the Hanseatic City of Greifswald
  • Ideal conditions for school trips
  • Perfect Youth Hostel for holding seminars and conferences

Platz für Forschergeister & Co.

Auf der großen Wiese hinter dem Haus kann man etwas auf die Beine stellen. Die Treffpunkte bieten viel Platz für die ganze Gemeinschaft. Für Sport und Spiel. Für kurze und intensivere Begegnungen. Für den Austausch von Ideen, Gedanken und Erlebnissen. Und für Experimente. Denn wir sind Forschergeister, neugierig auf Geschichte(n), auf Phänomene und alles, was die Umwelt und die Naturwissenschaft zu bieten haben.
