Everyday a new adventure
In the large protected area Eifel- a still young national park- the nature plays self-evidently the leading role. The guests of the youth hostel Hellenthal can spend their holidays here amidst an unique landscape. The dams Olef-, Rur- and Urftsee are offering splendid outlooks and walking-paths, so for example the wilderness-trail or the Eifelsteig are inviting for a relaxed exploration of the beautiful nature. Gladly familys, pupils- or leisure groups are discovering the terrific surrounding of our house by bicycle/Mountainbike- here you can lend in the municipally owned bicycle rental a rear-roller cycle, a child transporter and even an E-bike. Also the well-known cycle route Eifelhöhenroute leads directly along the youth hostel. A lot of tourist attractions, for example an outdoor enclosure with a bird of prey demonstration, the castle complex Wildenburg or the mining museum Grube Wohlfahrt are located in proximity.
The youth hostel Hellenthal bears quiet rightly the attribute “Experiential Education and Outdoor-Centre“. Already the roofed high rope course is in its kind unique in Germany- the perfect place for the team-building at a climbing tour with a small group from 10 persons on.
More sports? No problem, also the municipal sports hall can be rented from sports groups, which will find the ideal accommodation for their training camp.
Families do appreciate, beside the numerous leisure opportunities, especially the uncomplicated atmosphere in our historical half-timber house. Cycle holidaymakers are glad about the service of a “bed&bike“ accommodation. For wheelchair users, even an entire floor was new designed and equipped with 9 accessible rooms. As a conference youth hostel, in our offers the experience-oriented learning is in the focus and music groups can make music in the 6 rehearsal rooms.
