In Hohensolms castle, where once the earls of Solms resided, you can now learn English, French or German during your school holidays. The free time programme will allow you to explore the 14th century castle with your teachers as well as discover your hidden talents in our many workshops and medieval games.

As the day draws to a close you may embark upon our torch-lit night hike where you can finish the evening baking bread around a camp fire as part of our medieval party. English, French and German are spoken throughout the programme. In no time you’ll notice your language fluency dramatically improving.

Residence accommodation at Camp Hohensolms

In the youth hostel you will live with students of other nationalities in modern 4 to 8 bed rooms. Every room has its own shower and toilet. As the building is over 650 years old and has been redeveloped many times over the centuries, every room has its own character and design. Depending on travel dates students of the same nationality may be accommodated in the same room.

Please be aware that on arrival at the youth hostel we must receive a deposit of 50 euros per student. This will be returned to you when you leave the camp, providing that you have left everything in order, e.g. you have not lost the room key.

As we offer full board to our students, you will begin the day with a healthy breakfast. You can choose what you would like to eat from a buffet. At noon everybody will have lunch together, before the afternoon activities begin. There will always be a hot meal for lunch or dinner and we invite you to fill your plate with food from the buffet. However, depending on the activity programme of the day, you may be invited to pack some lunch to take with you. Drinks and fruit are always available for everybody. We believe you know best what food you need to make it through the day.

And, of course, we are not ignorant to special diets. Please let us know in your application whether you are a vegetarian, a vegan or have any other dietary requirement. We will do our best to accommodate your preferences and cater for your individual needs.

More about Camp Hohensolms

The Hohlensolms youth hostel lies above the city of Hohensolms on the Ramsberg mountain, with a great view over the Aartal. The extremely spacious bedrooms and classrooms are located in various buildings of the castle complex. Our programme takes place in the Student Lounge in the Knights’ Hall as well as in the castle courtyard. Sports and games are, however, by no means forgotten about as the castle grounds boasts a vast variety of sporting facilities; from beach volleyball courts and football fields to pinp pong tables. Hohensolms has it all.

In addition, the castle is only a few minutes away from Hohensolms village.

Hohensolms is not the camp you are looking for?

There may be many obstacles which can prevent you from coming to camp. The location may be to far away from home. Possible dates may be unconvenient or something else makes attending just impossible.

In these cases we would like to offer another camp from our portfolio. Maybe one of them is the one for you!

What your forerunners have to say

Maria, 14 Camp Hohensolms

"I enjoyed myself very much at Language Camp Hohensolms. I could really improve my English  language skills! The activities in the courtyard were very diverse and I found new freinds from Canada. We had a good time and I will definitely come back here next year.  🙂 "

Tobias, 11 Camp Hohensolms

„The castle on top of the hill was amazing. It was like travelling back in time to the Middle Ages!"
