Biedenkopf - home away from home in the upper Lahn valley

Certified as a family and Feel-Good Hostel, everyone can enjoy nature to their own taste here. Outdoor adventures are always fun, regardless of age, from primary school pupils to A-level students. And so is a playful flirt with technology at the LEGO Robocamp. The Youth Hostel will even whisk you away to the Caribbean, Bali etc. with massages, relaxing excercises and culinary delights. Two dining rooms and eight common rooms make the Hostel a great place for travels with your club or for conferences. Modern conference equipment and a piano are available for our guests. Groups can have a complete programme of leisure activities put together.
