Willkommen in der spritzigen Spitzenstadt!

Bei unserer Jugendherberge ist der Name Programm: Das Interieur erinnert nicht nur farblich an die Historie des Gebäudes. Wo einst die Einsatzfahrzeuge parkten, ist heute der Speisesaal - hier können hungrige Gäste wenn es schnell gehen muss, über die Rutschstange direkt zur Verpflegung gelangen. Und die Gerichte geben guten Anlass dazu, denn sie tragen bildhafte Namen wie "feurige Köstlichkeiten" oder "Brennpunkt Grill". Auch zahlreiche weitere Ausstattungsgegenstände illustrieren das nicht nur bei Kindern beliebte Thema. Eine Rutschstange, ein Schlauchturm und eine original Schlauchwäsche sind zur aktiven Erkundung einsatzbereit. Im abgeschlossenen Innenhof können Kinder sicher spielen und toben.

Perfekt ergänzt wird dieses tolle Haus durch seine Lage in der, mit dem "Ab in die City"-Preis gekürten Spitzen-Stadt Plauen. Denn gleich um die Ecke befinden sich Museen, die Innenstadt mit zahlreichen Geschäften, das Alaunbergwerk oder der Skaterpark. In der näheren Umgebung locken das "Meer des Vogtlandes" - die Talsperre Pöhl, die Vogtland-Arena, Kletterwälder, die Drachenhöhle in Syrau oder der Freizeitpark Plohn.

Great for families, the Youth Hostel is located in the old fire station, right in the heart of Plauen's historic town centre. Nearby you'll find museums, a theatre, a cinema and cultural establishments, a mine, sports facilities, diverse cuisine and charming passages packed with shops.
The "fire brigade" theme is continued throughout the Hostel; we have taken care to directly incorporate parts of the former fire station, including the sliding pole, hose tower and hose wash. The Hostel has 135 beds, most of them in two, three and four-bed rooms (all with shower and WC). These include 3 family apartments, 5 rooms for group leaders and 6 double rooms with wheelchair access.
Guests can also enjoy the "hot" dining room, ten function rooms (1x 60 people, 1x 40 people, a cafeteria, two children's playrooms, a disco, two rooms for group leaders), internet terminals, table tennis indoors and out, "Taifun" game, darts, playground, giant chess and an open-air kitchen for cooking and sizzling. These facilities are complemented by state-of-the-art conference technology (projector, screen, overhead projector, flip chart), cots and high chairs.
