Family Youth Hostel in Harz National Park

Portrait

The highest Youth Hostel in Saxony-Anhalt

The Youth Hostel in resort town of Schierke is an ideal base for enjoying and exploring the surrounding nature. On a peaceful ledge right above the town of Schierke, you can simply relax, enjoy the nature or take in the culture of the area’s towns. Our hostel, with its newly renovated large gymnasium, two new bowling lanes, seminar rooms and 4- bed rooms, is ideally suited for families, school groups, seminars, and sports groups.

Schierke in the Harz mountains

The Youth Hostel Schierke is located at the foot of the Brocken and the entrance to the Harz National Park. Leaving our door, you can hike to the peak of the Brocken, the highest peak in North Germany (1141 m), in about 2 hours, or enjoy an exhilirating ride on the Brocken Mountain Train ("Brockenbahn"). 

Schierke is well-known for its annual "Walpurgisnacht". From April 30 to May 1, the festival welcomes in the Nordic spring. According to tradition, witches fly over the Brocken on this night, in order to sweep away the last remnants of snow and to finally welcome in the spring for good. 

Welcome to the Harz – Region of Myths and Legends.
