Youth hostel in the Odenwald
Looking for affordable accommodation? No problem! More and more hotels and hotel chains in Germany are now offering attractive packages for young people. There are a number of special youth hostels and hotels catering specifically for the needs of young people, some of them close to major cities.

Vacation villages and vacation apartments or farm holidays might suit those who wish to stay in one place for a little longer. Alternatively, you can stay at one of more than 2,000 campsites and more than 600 youth hostels around Germany. Bed & Breakfast accommodation is no longer just a British phenomenon. Almost all tourist information offices now provide information about private rooms on arrival, some of which can also be booked in advance.
The Youth Hostels of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, for example, offer a "2 for 1" special from November through March when two overnights including half-board can be booked for the price of one. Call the service-center of the Mecklenburg Youth Hostels at +49-381-776670 for this and other special offers.
