Description

Green oasis in the middle of the city - Our youth hostel, one of the most modern in Germany, with its 120 rooms, is within walking distance of the Isar river. Would you like to get to know the whole of Munich in one week? We can put together a variety of programmes for you. 

A holiday between city air and nature: that's possible in Munich. Close to the Isar river, just a few underground stops from Munich city centre, you'll find our DJH youth hostel München-Park. Our hostel, the most modern in Germany, offers five seminar and conference rooms with state-of-the-art technology. 

Experience community - So that people with walking disabilities can enjoy their stay unhindered, this youth hostel is equipped to meet the needs of wheelchair users who can move their wheelchair themselves.

Our tip: Youth hostels cannot always be correctly assigned to the terms "wheelchair accessible" and "wheelchair-friendly". Before you decide on a stay, get detailed advice from the hostel team.
