The youth hostel movement was launched by a German school teacher Mr. Richard Schermann. Once during the visit to the countryside with a group of students, to teach them language by observation, they were caught in a storm and had to suffer due to non-availability of shelter.
This incident lead to the idea of youth hostelling and the first such Youth Hostel was established by Mr. Schermann in Germany in 1909. With the passage of time, the concept earned global recognition and turned into a movement, which boasts of a membership of 60 member Associations, 13 associate Organizations, 23 accredited agencies, a total about 4,000 hostels, over 340,000 beds, over 35 bed nights and active in 85 countries of the world.
