This sweet little place is the perfect place to spend the day with friends on a public holiday in Germany :)

Altena Burg was built in 12th-century.
A scenic location high above the old city on the Lenne, one of the most beautiful hilltop castles in Germany.
An interesting fact is also that there is the first permanent youth hostel in the world in its original state.

Meeting point is the Bochum Hauptbahnhof -main entrance.
With the train from Bochum (around 1 h drive), we can reach the castle directly. From Altena's train station we have a 12-minute walk. A bit Hilly walk, just to let you know ;)

After visiting a castle with a beautiful view, we can all visit one of the few restaurants in this area.
Tickets can be purchased on the same day at the train station and in the castle.

LG ;)
