This is where nature rules

  • Here, where the outlaw Schinderhannes once lived, lies the lovely Sargenroth Forest Youth Hostel, in the Soonwald-Nahe Nature Park not far from the town of Simmern. This is where nature rules. One special highlight this Youth Hostel has to offer is the in-house indoor pool. Between the Rhine, Moselle and Nahe rivers, the scenery of the low Hunsrück mountains is very diverse indeed; the landscape is a tapestry of forests, valleys and neat little towns nestled in the Hunsrück.

Aktivitäten rund um die Jugendherberge Sargenroth

Die Jugendherberge ist geschlossen.

Der Hunsrück zwischen Rhein, Mosel und Nahe ist eine Mittelgebirgslandschaft mit Besonderheiten und Urtümlichkeiten, wie man sie nur noch selten findet. Wälder, Täler und typische Hunsrückdörfer mit ihren schiefergedeckten Häusern charakterisieren das Landschaftsbild des Naturparks Soonwald-Nahe. Sehenswert sind beispielweise die Nunkirche direkt an der Jugendherberge und die Kreisstadt Simmern mit einem klassizistischen Schloss und dem Schinderhannesturm. Der 54 km lange Schinderhannes-Radweg führt direkt vorbei an der Jugendherberge.
