Welcome to the City of Modernity!
Chemnitz - a real insider tip for the young avant-garde and a "think tank" of innovation - is where contemporary artists like Carsten Nicolai, musicians like "Tefla & Jaleel" and Kraftklub as well as businesses such as "Wanderer-Werke" and "eins energie" originated or are based. For this reason the Youth Hostel has a special "Science & Arts" profile.
With its central location in the downtown area, this is the ideal base from which to explore Chemnitz. The building, which used to be a converter station created by Wagner-Poltrock, is a remarkable testimony to Chemnitz's top industrial architecture: With its hoist trolley and "imported" flywheel, guests can appreciate first-hand the atmosphere of this period.
