While the wild moors of the High Fens lie in wait outside, guests can lie in the cosy double and multi-bed rooms of the youth hostel - the perfect atmosphere for creepy horror stories for schoolchildren and youth groups. The youth hostel can offer real adventurers a campground for 20 to 100 people - with plenty of comfort, of course! The wide range of common rooms is also ideal for groups. Typically, each group can be assigned its own common room. In the evening, there's the possibility of grilling tasty sausages and steaks at a barbecue. Baking "stick bread" at the two campfire sites outside is even more romantic. And those who prefer to rock can spend the evening in the hostel's disco.
