Werner-Dietz Youth Hostel Baden-Baden

Youth Hostel

Werner-Dietz Youth Hostel Baden-Baden


Metropolis Baden-Baden. Multicultural and with unbelievable possibilities. World-famous for its hot pools, culture- and art programmes. The city´s character is shaped by a Mediterranean joy of life. At the Festspielhaus, in the spa garden and at the racecourse.

Or simply enjoy nature? Baden-Baden is gateway to the black forest. Put your walking boots on and climb the Battert rock! Or do you prefer to swim? During the summer you are lured by the Hardbergbad next door. What else could you ask for? You must have seen this city.

The Youth Hostel ist located in the west of Baden-Baden between the station of Baden-Baden Oos and the city.
The Central Station is about 4,5 km from the Youth Hostel; if you want to go into the city, you will need about 30 minutes (3 km).

This is what our guests appreciate:

We´ve asked some of our young visitors, what they think about our Youth Hostel - here are the results:
The town's history itself is enough to turn it into something special. The Alemanns and the Romans and even some successful and popular poets and thinkers left marks in the city. They came to recover in the mild climate or to spend their retirement here. Even today stars and starlets (e.g.), high-quality politicians (e.g. Obama) and guests of all nationalities are visiting the city.

A creative city with future! And the Youth Hostel? Nothing is straight here - corners and borders are shaping the special architecture and turn every single room into a unicum. Fashionably and flooded with light, nice food and a contact person at night. Always occupied by international guests the Youth Hostel provides the basis for multi-cultural communication. Attractive sports facilities in summer and winter, bars and pubs for anyone's taste. Memorable for young people: the New Pop Festival!
