Cuxhaven-Duhnen

Portrait

BEACH AT YOUR DOORSTEP  Kilometers of sandy beaches stretch along the Lower Saxony North Sea coast. At the Cuxhaven Youth Hostel, the beach is right outside your door. It's located in the Cuxhaven beach district of the city: Duhnen. The youth hostel is ideal for groups and classes, but many families are also among its long-time regular guests who appreciate the exclusive beach location and the great cuisine of the house.

IDEAL FOR FAMILIES  As a youth hostel with the profile "particularly suitable for families," the Cuxhaven Youth Hostel offers excellent facilities for families with small children, a playroom, and a courtyard with a slide and play area.

YOUR HOST is hostel manager Karsten Wulf and his team. He has been connected to youth hostels since childhood because his parents also ran a youth hostel. Let him and his team show you the highlights of Cuxhaven or book one of the programs that the team puts their hearts into.

YOUR NORTH SEA PROGRAM  Watt walks, boat trips to the seal banks, museum Windstärke 10, Coastal CleanUp Action, lovingly organized Easter and New Year's Eve programs for families.

YOUR YOUTH HOSTEL is only a few steps away from the beach. It's the ideal youth hostel for anyone who loves the sea, mudflats, waves, and beach. Welcome to Cuxhaven!
