How is life in the youth hostel in Kota

School camp Erlenried

The Erlenried school camp is located on the outskirts of Großhansdorf. The former farmhouse with its two buildings now offers separate accommodation for two groups. The houses are located on a fenced area of ​​35,000 square meters. It is a huge natural area with a pond, forest, small hills, meadow, soccer field and playground.

There are plenty of opportunities to move around on the play equipment, the bouldering wall, the low ropes course and the running path, as well as on natural obstacles such as the climbing tree and balancing trees. Tadpoles in the pond, common toads and frogs on paths and in the bushes, a wide variety of tree species and woodpecker holes, strange mushrooms can be discovered. Display boards show the connections and explain what you see.

We are there for everyone: Kindergarten children, elementary school students, older students, young people and adults!

Actions in the school camp

We have renewed our sports field since 2018. Now you can play great bolts and also play handball and basketball. Of course there is also the large lawn.

In Erlenried you can do great things, because you can find everything you need. But working with clay is also possible with us thanks to experienced cooperation partners.

On our large property you can discover a lot with our elaborated rallies. We have developed the right templates for every age group - there is sure to be something for your group too!

Children love to do climbing in their lives. There are plenty of opportunities to do this in the Erlenried school camp: climbing trees, bouldering towers, low ropes course and high rope climbing.

You can go on many great excursions from the Erlenried school camp. Thanks to the direct underground connection, there are many possibilities in Hamburg, but there are also interesting things to discover in the immediate vicinity.


There is something for everyone on our 36,000 square meter site: forest, pond, meadow, hill, playground, soccer field and ball playground.

For the sociable evening around the campfire, we have our grill kota. Here you can read or tell stories by the firelight, cook stick bread and later on you can grill sausages in the embers.
