Portrait

WELCOME TO THE NORTH SEA  In the North Sea resort of Otterndorf, the River Elbe flows into the sea, making this a place you just can't help but fall in love with. The town's centre boasts stunning half-timbered houses, and everything revolves around the water here. You can swim, paddle and kitesurf in many lakes, and just a few kilometres further, you'll find a grassy North Sea beach that's not overcrowded. Don't miss a guided mudflat hike, where you can enjoy walking on the gentle seabed with bare feet - it's said that mudpacks are great for the skin!

IDEAL FOR FAMILIES  The Otterndorf Youth Hostel provides excellent facilities for families with small children. The hostel's grounds offer plenty of space for running around, and the play and fun barn is perfect for bad weather days.

YOUR HOSTS  are the North Sea enthusiasts led by hostel manager Mike Dombrowski. Their youth hostel is a real insider tip for sea fans who prefer our charming location to the bustling North Sea resorts.

YOUR NORTH SEA PROGRAMME  Elbe cycle tours, mini golf, swimming in lakes and the North Sea, and guided mudflat hikes.

YOUR YOUTH HOSTEL  is a beautiful, typical North German red brick building. It's located "Achter Diek" - just behind the North Sea dike, with lakes and the North Sea within easy reach.
