Youth hostel with a private beach

A sandy beach stretches for kilometres along the coast from Cuxhaven. The modern hostel is situated in the Duhnen district of Cuxhaven. The 10 km long beach is just a few steps away. The harbour, the wadden sea and the sandy beaches create a unique maritime experience. In the summer, beach handball and volleyball tournaments take place on the hostel's beach. Kite surfers can practise daring jumps in the North Sea waves. And, of course, mudflat walks and river cruises are an absolute highlight in Cuxhaven.

Cuxhaven on the North Sea coast

Cuxhaven is the largest German coastal resort on the North Sea coast. The district of Duhnen has retained its cosy character. The highlight is the 10 km long sandy beach near the youth hostel. With Cuxhaven as your base, you can go cross the mudflats on foot or by horse-drawn carts. Boats go to the seal banks or to the North Sea islands. Near the hostel, there is a bike rental, the AHOI thalasso centre and an outdoor pool. Sports enthusiasts can go fishing, windsurfing, sailing and enjoy feeling the fresh sea breeze on their skin.
