Come and visit our family youth hostel, an Oasis of peace, in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The area is calm and quiet, however it's the ideal starting point for nice excursions, relaxing sails on the lake and interesting visits to museums and art exhibitions.

With its 10'000 m2 and its facilities the park can fulfil every expectation. There is also a nice swimming pool with deckchairs and sun umbrellas. For the children there are many games and a lot of green land where they can play. If you like sports there are a lot of attractions.

We have different kinds of bed rooms, living rooms, TV room, an Internet corner and a phone box. The breakfast (continental buffet) is served in a big room overlooking the garden. Thanks to all those characteristics the youth hostel has been recognised from many years among the nicest in Europe and has also won some awards.

For any further information the family Majek-Wassmann will always be pleased to help you.
