Heideruh, a holiday and conference centre in the countryside near Hamburg in North Germany, was established in 1945 by anti-fascists as a holiday home in which children, surviving relatives and friends of victims, and survivors of the cruel years of Nazi dictatorship could recuperate and restore their strength to fight for a better society. These guests joined with those who worked there to make Heideruh the special place it remains today: a place of relaxation, and also a meeting place for anti-fascists and potential supporters.
Heideruh, with 21 rooms, has accommodation for 38 people in all, with rooms for families, for small groups, single rooms and double rooms with 2 single beds as well as double beds. Some of the rooms have ensuite showers. Some have TV and some a balcony. There is also a camping site on the grounds.
