You have read rightly: actually there are 12 lakes in Nettetal, that`s why it`s also called the city of the lakes. Especially famous are the Krickenbecker lakes which are forming one of the oldest nature protection reserves in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Six colour-coded circular hiking-paths are offering hikes of diverse lenghts and interesting insights of the flora and fauna. Don`t feel like walking? Than enjoy the beauty of the landscape simply from the 28 metres high observation tower Taubenberg. Whoever is on the road with the bicycle is delighted by the proximity to the Lower-Rhine-route and the Fietsallee at the Nordkanal. People with mobility impairments can enjoy the surrounding on the certified wheelchair-path. Up for a trip to the Netherlands? The popular shopping city Venlo is just approx. 20 driving minutes away. A highlight for the children is the amusement park Klein Zwitserland directly behind the Dutch border.
Rise the curtain at the youth hostel Nettetal-Hinsbeck
Already at the arrival at the youth hostel Nettetal-Hinsbeck children`s eyes start to shine. The reason is the original circus tent on the outdoor area of the house in which circus leisure times for children, families and school classes take place. Artist, clown or fire-breather? Here everyone will discover his skills. But also music groups are using the circus tent for concerts and general rehearsals. The youth hostel itself is delighting especially parents, teenagers and congress-guests with its innovative architecture and the modern rooms with separate bath. At the breaks or after an exhausting day the outdoor area of the youth hostel and the nature park Schwalm-Nette are offering many opportunities for the perfect compensation.
