The Youth Hostel is located on the southern outskirts of town in the Bibertal valley, in Arnsberg Forest Nature Park.

Our Hostel has 134 beds, 8 of them in twin rooms and 126 of them in 20 dorms with between 4 and 8 beds. A day room for activities and meal times is made available to each group. We offer a buffet service at breakfast and for your evening meal. If you book in advance, sports groups may use Rüthen's local sports facilities. Our piano, which you can borrow free of charge, is certain to strike the right note. Each day room has a television, and you're welcome to use a VHS and DVD player as well as a flip chart for your activity programmes.

Good mood guaranteed

Near the Hostel there's plenty of room to get moving, go on adventures and enjoy plenty of fun and games, all the while well away from busy roads and just next to the forest. There's a football field with goals, table tennis tables, a campfire area, and a log cabin for activities, so you'll find plenty of reasons to play. Below the Youth Hostel, the Biberbad pool is perfect for cooling off in the summer months; it has a fun pool, wild water rapids, geysers and a long slide. Just next to it you'll find the Bibertal valley, which is also packed with fun things to do: it has an adventure playground, nature trail with 15 fascinating sections and an open stream, water-treading pool and lots more attractions - big ones and small!

An exciting programme

With a new destination to see every single day, your stay at Rüthen Youth Hostel is sure to be a truly varied one! Stay for a week and enjoy hiking through the Bibertal valley, to the "Hohler Stein" ("Hollow Stone") or try a guided tour of the town, where you can climb the water tower and the witch's tower. We can organise day/half-day nature experience/group activity programmes in cooperation with our partners. Day trips include Ramsbeck Mining Museum and Möhnetal Dam - with boat rides and a nature information centre. Please speak to us if you would like a brochure detailing the activity programmes we offer.
