Hostel Nuremberg

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Ancient vaults, thick walls - sleep in a real castle and enjoy the best Youth Hostel standards at Nuremberg Youth Hostel! You can look forward to staying in a fully refurbished Hostel in the imperial stables (Kaiserstallung) of the 500-year-old castle.

The hostel has excellent facilities with 93 ultra-modern rooms, all with en-suite shower and toilet, bar, bistro and state-of-the art equipment in the conference rooms: plenty of good reasons for staying here! Warm light and open-plan common areas enhance the special castle atmosphere. At Nuremberg Hostel, almost all floors and rooms are accessible by wheelchair.

The hostel is great for learning about the local history. Take in the atmosphere at the memorial sites of Nuremberg: the Nazi Party Rally Grounds Documentation Centre. Or plan your visit to enjoy the festivities. Gingerbread, punch and the famous "Christkindl" - stroll over the one-of-a-kind Nuremberg Christmas market in the Christmas season. And because the people of Nuremberg are a cheerful bunch, toys have also found their way into the city: every year, the world's largest toy fair takes place here.

We loved the hostel , and especially the 7th floor room. There is an excellent lift available and the views from that floor over the city are just incredible. The only points to make are that eggs were only available at breakfast at the weekend, and the lack of signs to the hostel when walking up the very steep hill from the centre of town. The first sign seen was beside the front door. That notwithstanding, this hostel is first class. Well done.

Nuremberg is a beautiful city. We were delighted to find this amazing 'castle' youth hostel was in the centre and so close to everything. Although it is a wonderful old historic building, the actual interior of the rooms and design owes more to a luxury boutique hotel than a youth hostel. There's nothing basic here. Everything is beautifully designed, clean and comfortable. We had a delicious supper for 6.90 euros and great breakfast. Well worth a visit. Fabulous culture too, museums etc.
