Family offers in the Hellenthal youth hostel

wilderness to look at, touch and understand

Between the Eifel National Park, the Ardennes and the High Fens that's where you'll find Hellenthal. The place is known for its game reserve with fast-paced birds of prey shows and the TV Star "Santiago, the condor, who doesn't want to fly". Trips to Oleftalsperre reservoir, ranger tours in the Eifel National Park and hiking in the High Fens are Popular with families. And when it's snowed, the snow report for the ski resort Weisser Stein will say "skiing & tobogganing good".
