Youth Hostel Windberg Monastery


94336 Windberg: 106 beds in 39 single, double and four-bed rooms, also 10 common rooms; wheelchair accessible. Solar architecture with TWD thermal insulation by Thomas Herzog. Completion: 1991

The special charm of the house results from the combination of the old monastery complex with the modern, functional accommodation facilities, as well as the charisma of the monastic community living here.

With the help of translucent (light-transmitting) thermal insulation - TWD - a particularly large amount of heating energy is saved, especially during the cold sunny winter days. Solar collectors and solar cells on the roof bring the sun directly into the bathroom and MP3 player. In the entrance area you can get more information about the energy system.
