Fun & Fitness

The range of leisure activities we offer also takes the Hostel's conceptual approach into account. In the Hostel you'll find an internet PC for surfing the web. Sports fans can pass the time playing billiards, table football and table tennis. There is more games and sports equipment outside, including climbing rocks and a streetball court, so you've plenty of opportunity to let off some steam - or why not do so in the gymnastics room? The sauna and steam bath are the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. Or enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the common rooms, where you can watch TV or have a quiet games evening (Monopoly etc.). Meet your friends for a chat in the bistro, where delicious snacks await you. In the "Haustreff" ("House Meeting Point") you can unwind for the evening in a relaxed atmosphere. Culture buffs will also be in their element: The old factory hall, which has been converted into a cultural events centre, often hosts famous actors and musicians starring in guest performances and international festivals.
