The Xanten Youth Hostel is located directly on the bank of the Xanten Südsee lake. The maritime atmosphere will be especially attractive for active guests with numerous attractive water sports activities such as sailing, surfing, diving and water-skiing. But our youth hostel also offers ideal conditions for beach volleyball fans.
The Xanten Youth Hostel offers educationally supervised 3-day and 5-day stays for school classes in which different types of water sports can be tried out (can be booked from April to October).
Families are prepared for the diving areas of this world under competent guidance with fun and action. There is even an 11-metre yacht that has been sunk in the Südsee for bold wreck-divers. The first underwater sculpture garden by the Xanten artist Hans Kluck can be viewed by diving there. Family fun is also to be had with the latest trend, catamaran sailing: glide directly across the surface of the water on the trapeze and experience the elements close-up. (Both ranges of programmes can be booked in the North Rhine-Westphalia summer holidays)
