Located in the city centre, on the inner Ring and close to the Paderhalle.

Heiersburg Youth Hostel opened way back in 1929. The Youth Hostel's tower dates back to the 14th century and once formed part of the city's defences. Today it houses our "Kaminzimmer" ("hearth room"); with a 4-metre-high ceiling and thick external walls, it's a particular favourite with music and conference groups. Our other common rooms are modern yet cosy, a nice place for guests to meet at meal times, for group work or to get together of an evening! With a total of 27 rooms (1-8 beds), we can accommodate up to 116 guests.

Fun and action:

It never gets boring here. Paderborn has so much to offer - whatever the weather! The Youth Hostel itself is also packed with entertaining things to do. We would be happy to provide you with a few tips concerning top leisure activities.

Surrounding region

We would be happy to assist you when planning your itinerary to help you see and enjoy the very best Paderborn and the surrounding area have to offer. We recommend walking along the Pader to the Fischteiche ("Fish Ponds"), where you can play crazy golf, and also a day out by coach to the Hermannsdenkmal (Hermann Monument), to the eagle centre and to the Externsteine rocks. We offer interactive education programmes for school classes, such as a "Walk long the data highway" and "Preparing for the world of work", where youngsters learn lots about themselves and their skills and may even end up leaving with a good idea of what they'd like to work as when they grow up!
