Welcome to our hostel

A jewel in the crown for the German hostels, this is a unique experience for all guests who stay here. Because while the facilities are first class and modern, our hostel in Nuremberg is actually a converted medieval castle complete with turrets.

Right in the heart of Franconia, this hostel opened its doors in 2013 and is already becoming one of the most popular destinations for school and music groups in Germany. With no less than eight packages being provided by the hostel for school groups of all ages, it is no wonder that teachers are flocking to this unique hostel.

With a huge history and a never-ending supply of attractions to keep groups of all kinds occupied, Nuremberg really is a city that has it all – far more than the gingerbread, toys, Christmas market or the Nuremberg Trials which many might be familiar with.

For families there is a Railway Museum as well as a Toy Musuem. Nuremberg is also home to Europe’s largest IMAX cinema which shows the latest releases. And for foodies no visit to Nuremberg would be complete without sampling the Bratwurst or the beer. A trip to a brewery can also be arranged easily as Nuremberg has more breweries than anywhere else in the world – with 300 in the area! Don’t miss Volksfest here (similar to the Oktoberfest in Munich but on a slightly smaller scale) which takes place twice a year.

So for any group there will be plenty to do in Nuremberg whilst making our unique hostel your base for your adventures. Why not make an enquiry now?
