Location

Located in the district of Barmen, the hostel is just a stone's throw from Wuppertal town centre. Museums, cinemas and many other city attractions are easily accessible on foot, by bus and by (suspended) railway. At the same time, the hostel is located in the countryside, at the foot of a vast forest and nature reserve and offers the ideal starting point for excursions in the area.

Arriving by bus or car
Via the A46:

take the A46, Wuppertal-Barmen exit, then straight down the valley to Alter Markt, then uphill again (Fischertal). At the end of the road turn right. The hostel's car park is 200 m further on the right.
