Leisure activities

At the Youth Hostel itself, you can play table tennis, table football or open-air chess, board games from our large collection, or rent one of our 11 Canadian canoes. A boules course, mini golf course, the Aquamar water park, pedal boat hire and the university's sports grounds are close by the Hostel. The Hostel is certified as a Bed&Bike Hostel and located immediatley upon the Lahn Cycling Route, a classic Hessian route. The Lahn valley is characterised by its many castles, palaces and churches. Because the difference in altitude is not big, the Hostel is an ideal place for families on a cycling tour to spend the night. It is a true alternative to a Bed&Bike Hotel in Marburg.
