Once again we selected a place in the heart of Austria, which is attractive to tourists from all around the world in both summer and winter because of its geographical position.

Wagrain specializes in youth-tourism and thus has a gigantic list of sporting and free-time activity options. Especially during the summer months lots of young people gather in the cozy city center as well as around mountains and lakes.

Our hostel -                  Oberwimm

Our facility encloses a big soccer field, Indoor Sports hall and trampoline, a beach-volleyball field and a big garden. The 4-Bed rooms are very modern and functional; there are many lounges for our students and premium wide ranging full board lodging.

Our residence is directly located at a mountain railway station and is 5 minutes walking distance away from a big water-fun park that we have free entrance to.
