Welcome to the youth hostel of the nuns in Gosau!
The Youth Hostel of the Nuns has been continued with the "Haus der Begegnung" since April 2016.
The rest home is centrally located in the church district in Gosau. It offers a beautiful view of the Gosaukamm and the surrounding mountains!
The Youth Hostel of the Nuns is a group house for young people/pupils and students, most of the rooms are multi-bedrooms. The house can also be booked as a self-catering house, with approx. 60 beds. All people, regardless of religion, are welcome. The organisation is a Protestant non-profit association.
A large, fully equipped kitchen can be used for extensive communal cooking, the results of which can then be enjoyed in the large hall in a cosy atmosphere. The house offers space for up to 57 people and is perfect for families and groups.
Due to the central location, hiking and mountain bike tours can be started directly from the house. Whether via the Panorama Trail to the Zwieselalm or by bike to the mountain pastureRossalm, there is something for everyone.
In winter, the Dachstein West ski region is only a few minutes away with the free ski bus, which stops right in front of the house. The cross-country skiing trail is also in the immediate vicinity of the house.
For bookings for the coming years, please contact the house manager Martin Wächter.
We are looking forward to your visit!
