HI - Forbach - Environmental Study Centre - Franz-Köbele Hostel Reviews


Meadows. Forests. Wild orchids. Nothing but nature in Forbach-Herrenwies. Do you want to see right down to the bottom of the water? Or study the bark on the trees? Surrounded by nature conservation meadows and forests, the hostel is in a beautiful location. The landscape is rich in rare plant and animal species. How about staying in a large area designated as a Flora and Fauna Habitat (FFH)? The Franz Köberle Youth Hostel in Herrenwies is a non-school site with a large range of possibilities. Situated in the middle of lovely countryside, this location fosters the creativity and imagination of our guests and is used for environmental education purposes. The Environmental|Hostel, with its environmental laboratory, offers educational programmes on nature, nutrition and technology. The food? Organic, of course. A healthy diet, environmental awareness and the efficient use of resources are the pillars of this accommodation.

The hostel is located at the Schwarzwaldhochstraße (Black Forest Road), in a high valley, between the wine-growing village of Buhlertal and the Schwarzenbachtalsperre dam, at a height of about 800 m above sea level.

The Herrenwies Youth Hostel team is looking forward to your visit.
