Located in a former inn and storehouse dating from 1537, nature lovers value the neighbouring national park in the summer, while during the winter months the hostel is an ideal base for snow tours.
The hostel lies on the edge of the forest and is a splendid base from which to engage in sporting activities of every kind. The lake, sports centre and indoor swimming pool are close at hand.
Surrounded by a peaceful green belt, the youth hostel offers a fascinating view over the roofs of the town thanks to its hillside location.
The hostel is worth visiting just to look within the historic customs house. In the evening, the old town just round the corner draws you into cosy pubs.
