Intentionally sustainable.

Our Eco/Youth Hostels in the Rhineland.

Sustainability has to be learned.

Certainly our rhenish Eco/Youth Hostels are first at all open and friendly guesthouses, but inspiring learning- and experience centers as well. Here we are generating a relaxed learning milieu, and are trying to place ecological and social didactic impulses for our guests and employees. Either family holiday, school trip or group tour- one has to undergo sustainability!
