Youth Hostel Kehl

55 Ratings

Youth Hostel


The gateway to France. Only the Rhine separates the town from its neighbour of Strasbourg.

Kehl offers culture, shopping and recreational opportunities on land, on water and in the air. Tarte flambée. Asparagus. In Kehl, people appreciate and treasure the cuisine from the Baden region. Right next door in Strasbourg, there's the Alsatian cuisine. Those fond of delicious food will love it here. Fancy some exercise? A walk along the Rhine promenade or to the Handicraft Museum it is a must. In Kehl, secluded village squares, lined with half-timbered houses, await you!

Fancy a walk by the Rhine? A trip across the bridge over the Rhine to France? Kehl is cosmopolitan. And warm-hearted. In Kehl, you'll experience more summer days than in most places in Germany. The winters are shorter and the summer evenings warmer and longer.

How about going up the Weißtannenturm, an observation tower 38 m high? Have you climbed the 210 steps? On a clear day, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful view of the Black Forest and the Vosges. The play area, with a "Wasserband" ("ribbon of water"), a "balancing garden", a pirate ship and skate park, is along the cut-off meander of the river Rhine.

Want a bit more action? Anyone looking for a big city experience can be in Strasbourg within a few minutes . After climbing 332 steps, the view from the minster is incredible.

Welcome to Kehl. The hostel is located in the town's sports and leisure area, south of the town centre, next to the Rhine.

The Kehl Youth Hostel team is looking forward to your visit!
