When the sun rises over the Pfreimdtal valley and you squint through the window into the sun along the thick walls, you've landed in an idyllic setting - at Trausnitz Castle Youth Hostel! Perfect for exciting time travel, fun medieval games, hearty knights' evenings - whether with the class or the family, everyone is in good hands here.
Baking bread, making candles, blacksmithing - medieval crafts are on the program. A variety of building blocks on the theme of the Middle Ages take you back to the time of knights and damsels at the court of Trausnitz Castle. During the Christmas season, the historical Christmas market attracts visitors every two years, and during the year there are numerous medieval reloaded programs.
Back in the present, lace up your hiking boots. Rustic hiking trails and mountainous cycle routes lead through the fairytale Upper Palatinate Forest. Instead of medieval highwaymen, you will encounter unspoiled landscapes and perhaps even a few bathing beauties at the nearby reservoir. Dive in and refresh yourself is the motto here. Or would you prefer a short boat trip to the opposite shore? The Monte Kaolino with its high ropes course, summer toboggan run and the opportunity to go sandboarding or cool off in the dune beach pool awaits the brave.
Fancy a detour?
Idyllic or not, you fancy a bit of city hustle and bustle in between? Then head to Regensburg, Nuremberg or even the Czech Republic! In Trausnitz, you're never far from the Middle Ages or the surrounding area.
