Youth Hostel
Göttingen

Portrait

The university city of Göttingen - the city of Gauss, the Brothers Grimm and Lichtenberg - has brought out more than forty Nobel Prize winners. Today it is still known for its lively student life. The old town centre is home to many well-preserved buildings. The coffee house Cron & Lanz captivates with sweet sins, in the Niki-Kiez, the smart trendy district, art is just as much a part of it as charming cafés, clubs, vintage and street food. Around the Old Town Hall and St. John's Church, the Christmas market opens its doors during Advent.

Our youth hostel with basketball and volleyball court is located on the outskirts of the city, away from the hustle and bustle. It offers the best requirements for conferences and seminars as well as for music camps and is the ideal starting point for families, groups and school classes to discover the many opportunities in the city and its surroundings.

In the climbing and bouldering hall or in the trampoline park you can really fly high. Experience the colourfully painted worlds through 3D glasses at neon golf and trace the secrets of old vaulted cellars during a walk through Göttingen's underworld. The brave among you can climb the 72-metre-high tower of the Jacobi Church. To take a deep breath, we recommend the Old Botanical Garden with its historic greenhouses. Another green oasis is the city cemetery, where you can visit Nobel Prize winners such as Max Planck or Otto Hahn. In the surrounding area, a visit to Ebergötzen is doubly worthwhile: here the European Bread Museum and the Wilhelm Busch Mill are only a few metres apart. Places full of historical flair are Plesse Castle with its accessible keep or Berlepsch Castle.
