Let's go on an adventure - Children and Youth Travels to Saxony

Saxony offers many adventures for young people. In Saxony there are special overnight facilities for children and youth groups: youth hostels, children and youth recreational centres, Christian leisure centres, school youth hostels and friends-of-nature houses. 

Hurling into the adventure

Classics with a modern face - the youth hostel

With their almost 90-year-old tradition the youth hostels belong to the oldest lodgings in Saxony - and have yet remained young. Whether entertaining stays for school classes, sports teams or clubs - life here is sociable, creative and relaxed. And all of this at moderate prices. There are youth hostels in every major city in Saxony, one of the most modern ones even in a real castle: at Colditz Castle the recently opened youth hostel "Europa" offers 161 beds in shared rooms with shower and toilet. Family rooms, table tennis room, disco room, children's play room, seminar and conference rooms as well as a big terrace and a vast park make the youth hostel in Colditz Castle a real holiday paradise for young people.

Children are drawn to the "KiEZ"

A special type apart from youth hostels and family hotels are the children's and youth recreational centres in Saxony, briefly called "Kiez". No idea what a "KiEZ" is? Quite simple: it is a unique offer in Saxony. In six spacious holiday and recreational facilities in the middle of nature children and adolescents with or without their parents, clubs, school classes and youth associations can spend an exciting time. The "KiEZ"es are open throughout the year.

Learning for life in the school youth hostel

Whoever wants to train his brain during school days or holidays is in good hands in the  19 school youth hostels in Saxony. For example, one can cook for oneself, fire a rocket or have a try at spinning flax in the spinning room like sleeping beauty. The school youth hostels are also open for holiday camps, "Rüstzeiten" (a period of reflection of the protestant church, meaning a church youth or family group trip with a lot of singing) as well as training, choir and rehearsal camps.

Open to everyone - Christian leisure centres in Saxony

Long since have the Christian leisure centres been welcoming not only youth or family groups for "Rüstzeit" intensively devoting themselves to Christian faith for several days. The personality of children, adolescents, families and adults in general is important to the providers of these special holiday houses. Individuality instead of mass processing is their credo. One of their specialties: the self-catering houses. Here, kids and teens can let off steam at the stove and discover how much fun cooking and eating together can be. The youth guest and full catering houses of the "AG Rüstzeitheime" are supported by protestant churches and ecumenical partners in Saxony.
