The Youth Hostel is located inside the castle, "Schloss Windischleuba". The castle was part of the estate of the ballad poet Börries von Münchhausen and is not far from Altenburg, a former residence town and home of the card game skat. The Youth Hostel is excellently suited to choirs and music groups. But the castle is also very well equipped for seminars and conferences. Located on the "Thüringer Städtekette" ("Thuringian Town Chain") long-distance cycling route, cyclists will find this is an idyllic place to stay. The Youth Hostel's service-oriented staff are already looking forward to welcoming you.
