Welcome to our hostel

Karlsruhe is located on the north-western edge of the town, just a ten-minute walk to the town centre, between Karlsruhe Palace, the College of Engineering and the College of Education.

The hostel has 167 beds in 42 rooms, mostly with four and six beds. Many of the rooms are en suite and there are also shared bathrooms on each floor. There are 12 rooms available for carers/supervisors. The hostel also has 3 common rooms, a lounge for carers/supervisors and a seminar room. The hostel can offer a highly qualified range of programmes for school trips, camps and seminars. The programmes include self-organised cultural and historical explorations, hunts for evidence, excursions, activities and practical projects.

The home of the famous Karl Benz, creator of the famous Mercedes Benz, Karlsruhe is between culture and technology, town and countryside. Not yet 300 years old, the city has enjoyed a long tradition as a research metropolis. Karlsruhe is also known as the "green city". Parks with towering trees and well-kept gardens characterize the town. How about just strolling through the park? Or visiting the ZKM? Or going on a trip to the zoological city gardens?

Quietly situated on the edge of the town near a park this was a pleasant stay en route to the hillier South.

gli armadi sono capienti, ma si dovrebbe dotarli di un lucchetto con catena per chiuderli... io avevo il lucchetto , ma non potevo usarlo..... questo secondo me importante per la sicurezza.... la spesa sarebbe minima......

Viel zu teuer für ein Bett in einem Zimmer ohne Sanitäranlagen!
