Wetzlar, city of optics

Wetzlar Youth Hostel is located on the southern outskirts of the city, by an old watchtower. From here, hikers and nature lovers can go on a discovery tour of the beautiful Lahn river landscapes between the Taunus and Westerwald regions.

A Hostel for all your senses
Go paddling on the Lahn, sharpen your sense of figures, learn about optics. Discover a different world high above in the castle or deep down under the surface. Our modern Youth Hostel with a panoramic view of Wetzlar is just right for bright minds. Several groups can be accommodated in the Hostel's three houses. The Hostel is particularly popular with music groups and choirs, school classes and clubs, but also with families or church groups. Our kitchen will provide you with a varied diet and is happy to accommodate individual requirements upon request.
