Korbach in the gold digger country

Korbach Youth Hostel in Hesse is located close to the city centre, surrounded by a park-like area and former city wall. The Hostel is ideal for quiet weekends away or holidays in the wooded Waldecker Land region, but also for exciting discovery tours of history.

Comfortable sports and family Hostel
Situated between two highlights of the area, Willingen and Edersee lake, the family-friendly Youth Hostel of Korbach is a popular venue for sports groups, seminars and school classes (up to about 6th grade) and, of course, for families. Sports grounds and a gymnasium are available for use free of charge by arrangement. An indoor pool is located close by and offers ideal and inexpensive training conditions. Thanks to the Hostel being so close to Willingen, it is also popular with winter sports fans. Since its renovation in 2010, the Hostel has also been an attractive and fully equipped venue for conferences. Modern conference equipment and an electronic piano are available for our guests.

For hikers who want to discover the picture-book landscapes of the Waldecker Land region and its many historic cultural treasures, there is a new attraction now. A new portal has welcomed guests at the entry point to the "Sauerland Höhenflug" hiking trail in Korbach since recently. The hiking trail, which is truly breathtaking, leads along a total of 250 km of hiking paths over the Sauerland heights to Meinerzhagen and Altena.

Hiking maps and brochures are available from the tourist offices in the towns the trails lead along. The website at www.sauerland-hoehenflug.de also offers a wealth of information and a booking functionality for reserving your accommodation directly via the site.
