Youth on the Campus
The renovation of the former deanery and its conversion into a youth hostel is part of the International Building Exhibition Urban Redevelopment 2010 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg.

The deanery was built at the same time as the castle between 1489 and 1525. It was originally connected to the castle church by a six-storey gate tower and was located at the front of the castle. The ground floor housed stables and service room, with living rooms and offices on the floors above. Having sustained damage during the Seven Years’ War, the deanery was replaced with the current buildings, which were constructed on the original foundations around 1770. Today, an archway rather than a gate tower connects the deanery to the castle church. From 1773, the buildings were used as a Prussian military hospital and administrative offices before becoming part of the barracks in 1819.

Today, the building is a youth hostel for approximately 150 guests, has seminar and meeting rooms and is fully equipped for people with disabilities.

Wittenberg.

Die Amtshäuser wurden zusammen mit dem Schloss zwischen 1489 and 1525 errichtet. Ursprünglich war das Gebäude über einen sechsgeschossigen Torturm mit der Schlosskirche verbunden. Die Häuser bildeten das Vorschloss. Im Erdgeschoss waren Stallungen und Wirtschaftsräume, in den Obergeschossen Wohn- und Amtsstuben untergebracht. Nach Beschuss während des Siebenjährigen Krieges wurden auf den Fundamenten des teilweise zerstörten Vorschlosses um 1770 die heutigen Gebäude errichtet. Anstelle des ehemaligen Torturmes findet man den heutigen Torbogen als Verbindung zur Schlosskirche. Ab 1773 wurden die Gebäude als preußisches Lazarett und Kreisamt genutzt, um ab 1819 Teil der Kaserne zu werden.

Heute wird hier eine barrierefreie Jugendherberge für ca. 150 Gäste mit Seminar- und Tagungsräumen betrieben.
