Welcome to the Youth Hostel Neu Nagelberg!

The building is situated beneath a pond in the area of Gmünd. Marshes, ponds, “Wackelsteine” and nature parks are the highlights of the northern Waldviertel. Numerous possibilities for going on a ramble in the wood around the hostel offer relaxation and contact with nature. The building contains 37 beds and is one of the most cosy hostels.

Due to the proximity to the border, a short trip to the Czech Republic is also a good possibility to explore the region. For activities in the evening there is a huge barbecue place. The “Blockheide Naturparks”, “Naturlehrpfade” and many more are situated in the northern Waldviertel. This region is also famous for the art of glass blowing, so you can watch a glass blower at work. The “Bauernhausmuseum” and the “Schulmuseum” are recommendable alternatives, if there is a rainy day during your stay. An information folder for planning school trips can be ordered at the Lower Austrian office: Jugendherbergsverband NÖ


The rooms are perfectly suitable for seminars, holidays or a school trip. There is a huge common room with table soccer and table tennis, a full equipped seminar room with blackboard, a big pitch with goals and basketball basket and a barbecue place.

Food and Beverage:

We offer a buffet-breakfast. You can preorder lunch and dinner as well as packed lunches for 10 persons or more. We also offer catering for seminars, small meals for children until 10 years and vegetarian meals on request. If it is sunny, you can also have a barbecue.

Special advice:

Schools, which are planning a project week with us, will receive a comprehensive information folder supporting the program. The main topics are, above all, the production of glass with a centuries-long tradition and experiencing nature. There are almost unlimited opportunities to relax, to do sports and to visit cultural sights.
