Youth Hostel Colditz Castle
Feeling Good Instead of Planning Your Escape

Those who spend the night at Colditz Castle have the opportunity to sleep in a place rich in history. It served as an internment camp for high-ranking Western Allies during World War II, including Winston Churchill's nephew. The spectacular escape attempts of the prisoners have been chronicled in several books and films – and have made Colditz world famous.
Today, Colditz Castle in the Leipziger Land accommodates the European Youth Hostel with its special international flair. Up to 171 guests can stay in the 34 bright, friendly and modern rooms. There are also many conference and common rooms available. Musicians will find the best rehearsal and working conditions in the adjacent Landesmusikakademie Sachsen. No one will get bored here thanks to a wide range of sightseeing tours, readings, bicycle tours, hikes or rubber dinghy tours.
