DJH Youth Hostel Dessau-Roßlau

About Us

Families – Groups – Seminars – Culture – Handicapped-Accessible

In a peaceful forested area and yet not far from the downtown area, it’s easy to enjoy both nature and the culture of Dessau. With 5 seminar rooms and 2- to 7- bed rooms with shower and toilet, the hostel is ideally suited for families, school groups, and seminar groups. The hostel was also designed to be handicapped-accessible: four rooms are wheelchair-friendly and an elevator also enables guest with limited mobility to enjoy their stay. Our large playground facility is also a hit with children, and is also designed for handicapped accessibility.

Historical Information

Youth Hostel "Waldkaterweg" before 1990
The Youth Hostel before the modification

The older youth hostel on the Waldkaterweg (left) serves today as a budget-friendly group house and is only a few minutes from the new main hostel, opened in the summer of 2007 as the "Jugendherberge Dessau-Roßlau."

The new hostel was so thoroughly modernized and renovated (left), so much so that the older picture is hardly recognizable as the same structure.
