The foothills of the Alps in front of you, breakfast with a view of the water, the first surfers gliding over the waves: This is what awaits you in our alpine-romantic youth hostel on Lake Walchensee. We are an "Alpine study place". Nature lovers of all ages learn about and understand Alpine culture and nature here with us. This is ensured by our educational adventure programs.
You can find a view of the immediate surroundings and the current weather here.
Vacations in a cinematic ambience
The scenery that lies at your feet is cinematic. It was not for nothing that the charming ambience at Walchensee was chosen for the live-action filming of "Wickie und die starken Männer".
Experience the impressive mountain landscape and its plants and animals. Take the Herzogstandbahn to the summit. If you prefer sporty activities, you can hike up to the lofty heights or explore the fantastic landscape on a ski tour in winter.
Water lovers will be delighted to cool off in the Walchensee - a dream for swimming, windsurfing and stand-up paddling. You can find all information about possible courses from our partner Sunnawind.
