Leisure facilities in the area

Anyone coming to Radevormwald has one thing in mind - enjoying nature, experiencing real adventures and discovering the Bergisches Land region. Thanks to its position outside the town, Radevormwald Youth Hostel offers the ideal prerequisites to achieve all this.

The hilly landscape is a paradise for holidaymakers and sportspeople: enjoy long walks and hikes in the midst of a unique natural setting, or go on an exciting bicycle tour of the area. The team at the hostel can tell you about some well-devised cycling trips. The town itself is also worth a visit - after all, Radevormwald is one of the oldest towns in the Bergisches Land. The historical old part of town, with its narrow streets and monuments, is ideal for long walks. The symbol of the town - a skyline of four bell towers - can best be admired from outside the town.

School groups in particular experience adventures when taking part in the varied class trip that the hostel offers. Team spirit is strengthened with the fun and games offered by many demanding tasks. Nature safaris, adventure rallies and many more "programme blocks" offer a colourful mix revolving around creativity, cleverness and consideration.
