Portrait

Pedal, Paddle, Snack Break - Eichstätt is ready, and so is your vacation. Bike paths as far as the eye can see. Water where you need it for boating and canoeing. Places exactly where the cappuccino tastes the best. Eichstätt, a city that embodies both Baroque charm and youthful energy on the Altmühltal Cycle Path. It offers the old and the new, and in the Eichstätt Youth Hostel, it showcases its natural side.

Fossil Time at the Youth Hostel

The finds in the quarries around Eichstätt are ancient. In one of them, you can go in search of dinosaurs and become a hobby archaeologist. The Jurassic period still holds the city on the Altmühl River in its grip, regularly delivering new discoveries. And if you don't find anything, you can "create" your own fossils in the Eichstätt Youth Hostel. These activities, like many others, are supervised and designed for school classes and groups. Beekeeping, geocaching, climbing - it's all about variety, not boredom, and wonder is the motto. For example, wonder at Archaeopteryx and more. The ancient bird, etched in stone, a pterosaur with an eleven-meter wingspan, and much more can be found at the Jura Museum in Willibaldsburg.

When you check into the Eichstätt Youth Hostel, you'll be active, whether on a school trip or during family vacations. Enjoy your family getaway with us at the Eichstätt Youth Hostel and embark on a discovery tour with your loved ones. On land and on the water - we leave flying to the birds.
