The Youth Hostel is located directly next to the lake "Zwischenahner Meer" and has its own bathing area, an entry point for surfers and a jetty. With water, marshland and blooming countryside so close to each other, rest and recreation are a law of nature. Bad Zwischenahn Youth Hostel is nestled directly next to the 526-hectare "Zwischenahner Meer". The centre of the resort town is just a twenty-minute stroll away. But sometimes we like to go a little further: An extensive network of bicycle and hiking trails runs through the landscape, with its typical Ammerländer farmhouses.

5 conference rooms, 1 dining room, rooms with between 2 and 7 beds with en-suite shower/WC, family bungalow (15 beds) for 3 to 4 families, in the new building 17 rooms with three or four beds each and a terrace or balcony, seven of which have doors connecting them to the next room. The Youth Hostel grounds boast barbecue and campfire areas as well as a lawn for playing and relaxing and an area for ball games. Indoors we have a family common room and playroom.

"Anchors aweigh!"

Welcome to the water sports paradise! In addition to the DJH's very own sailing school, the only Sport|Youth Hostel with a focus on water sports offers loads of other sports facilities involving the wet stuff. What's more, after a hot match on our private beach volleyball court or football area, everyone can go for a cooling dip at the Hostel's bathing spot or relax in the sunshine.
