Youth hostel in Beaufort

The modern youth hostel in Beaufort is much more than an affordable lodging for your holidays in the region of the Mullerthal-Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland!

Why should you spend your holidays in Beaufort? That’s quite easy to explain: because of the Mullerthal region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland with its natural hiking trails, famous rocky landscape and impressive scenery of the old castle. Last but not least, of course, because of the family friendly and affordable youth hostel.

Since 2013, the newly built youth hostel located in the centre of Beaufort welcomes groups, families, hikers, cyclists and backpackers during every season. If the weather is sunny, the guest can hike, cycle or just relax on the patio while watching the kids play in the garden. If it rains, you’re welcome to have fun and play games on the hostel’s indoor playground or bowling alley.

Not only does the youth hostel accommodate families, athletes and backpackers, but also business people. Three conference rooms can be used for productive gatherings. After the meeting, the guests can enjoy a relaxing meet & greet at the stylish bar. The ‘Melting Pot’, the in-house restaurant, serves the menu of the day or 'à la carte'.
