Mediaeval walls. Gates and towers. Winding alleyways. Welcome to the mediaeval mountain village of Dilsberg! The view from the castle tower ruins is unforgettable: forested slopes, lovely meadows and the winding Neckar Valley – simply breath-taking.
The hostel is on Dilsberg mountain, about 200 m high above the valley. Ever lived in a town gate? The hostel is part of the fully-preserved mediaeval town walls. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity in the picturesque village complex. Fully pedestrianized. Would you prefer a bit more noise? The small castle park has enough room to run around in. As do the meadows around Dilsberg mountain. On warm summer evenings, the outdoor theatre next to the castle wall attracts many visitors. Enjoy a real cultural experience in Dilsberg’s Kommandantenhaus (“Commandant’s House”), the cultural centre of the Rhine-Neckar district. Also worth seeing is the view from the battlements of the castle wall. You can make out Neckarsteinach’s four castles on the other side of the Neckar. How about a hike? The excursion boat to Heidelberg stops at the foot of the castles. All aboard, the boat is casting off!
Dilsberg Youth Hostel is a classic, traditional hostel, with a lively and informal atmosphere. We offer our guests a comfortable stay at any time and the utmost comfort in a simple environment. We regard ourselves as an out-of-school learning and meeting centre, where mainly children can enjoy new social and personal experiences in the community. To achieve this, we offer cultural and experiential education programmes. They are closely linked to our mediaeval community and the natural environment in the lower Neckar valley. We primarily work with local suppliers and event organizers.
The Dilsberg Youth Hostel team is looking forward to your visit!
