Schwarzburg Youth Hostel

The Youth Hostel consists of three separate properties and a large outdoor area. The main house was donated by Alfred Töpfer - a merchant from Hamburg - in 1928, and from 1932 onwards it was used as a Hostel for young people and hikers. The "Haus Köthen", located right next to the river Schwarza, is particularly suited to families; with a lounge, bedroom, children's bedroom, kitchen and bathroom it makes a great holiday apartment. The bungalow site is home to 12 bungalows, all of which offer plenty of space for families. Tucked away in the picturesque Schwarza Valley, here you will find there's plenty on offer for your own individual, action-packed trip.
