There`s motion in here.

The surrounding

The city of Kevelaer is the biggest pilgrimage destination in North-West Europe. Visitors are walking through the historical urban core, strolling through beautiful old alleys and are discovering many a picturesque corners in this “City of Arts&Crafts“. Popular and always strongly visited is self-evidently the pilgrimage realm with the Marien-basilica, the Chapel of Grace and the Chapel of Candles. But also outside the city there`s a lot to discover. The nature in the green West attracts beside families also cyclists, wanderers, canoeists and horseman, who are spending here their holidays or short trips at the Lower Rhine. By the way: beside the tremendous walking paths even 2 well-known cycle-paths are located in proximity to our youth hostel- the LowerRhineRoute and the Via Romana. Also school classes are gladly here for a visit. Then, beside the nature, also the rich history and the cultural highlights are playing a lead role.

Our house

Our youth hostel Kevelaer is popular not just for pilgrims, because the cosy house at the edge of the forest distinguishes itself by an easy and cordial atmosphere, which especially groups do appreciate.

The rooms are cosy, bright and appealing. As a group, you can meet calmly in one of the five communal rooms. Our “bed&bike“ service is naturally used gladly by the numerous cyclists. Ball sports have a huge priority with us in Kevelaer- at the volleyball, basketball or football our guests compete in friendly contests. Quite often the debriefing proceeds at the cosy barbecue- and campfire place.
