Fascination of the Mecklenburg Lake District

Frolicking around or doing training practice, relaxing or playing games, having a conference or simply day-dreaming - everything is possible at Malchow Youth Hostel. The surrounding region has loads to offer too. There are beautiful woods and lakes and so much more nature has to offer. Excursions to Lake Müritz on the passenger ferries of the lakes of Mecklenburg Lake District are so much fun for the whole family. Those who like more of a sporty challenge will find everything they could wish for at Malchow: There are plenty of opportunities to get fit, whether you choose to exercise on land, water or on a horse's back.
