Memorial Center



Right next to the Brehm Memorial Center there is the Brehm-Hostel, where school classes, groups of hikers and adults can spend the night. In cooperation with the Brehm Memorial Center, a wide range of activities is offered. Since there are only few beds (34 in 8 rooms) and since meals have to be ordered, we recommend to book in advance. For further information please contact the Brehm-Hostel directly!
