Welcome in the Youth Hostel Radis

Our hostel is located in an old, historically protected manor in the town of Radis. With our numerous activity offerings, our hostel is especially well suited for childrens’ and school groups. Since our reception is only staffed by agreement, we recommend families and single guests our partner Youth Hostels in Wittenberg and Dessau.

The attractive and tourist-friendly region around Radis has numerous sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list, including the birthplace of the Reformation, Wittenberg, and the "Garden Kingdom" of Dessau-Wörlitz. From here, the Bauhaus and "Meisterhäuser" achievements of Dessau are also easily accessible.

Radis is a tranquil village on the border of the charming Dübener Heath nature reserve. Many different species of animals are at home in Dübener Heath, especially different types of deer, fallow deer and wild boars. The beaver, symbolic for the region, also feels at home along the many streams and rivers in the area. The nearby Bergwitzsee lake is a particularly attractive spot in the vicinity, embedded in a watery landscape. The lake attracts many bathers each year with its diving, sailing and windsurfing opportunities and the long sandy beach. The vast deciduous and coniferous forests and mixed woods in the region and the many well-signposted cycling routes and hiking trails are ideal for an active holiday. The Heide Biber Tour around the nature reserve was even awarded the "Qualitätsweg wanderbares Deutschland" seal of approval, and the Luther hiking path is increasingly popular with visitors, too. 

Wittenberg, the city of Luther, and its historic sites, which bear witness of the reformation, is a popular destination for an excursion. From All Saint's Church to Luther Hall - the "historic mile" lets you experience a piece of world history.
