The youth hostel stands outside the village of Fällanden on the shore of Lake Greifen, a largely environmentally-protected area. For groups only!
In summer, the hostel is the starting point for Alpine walks. In winter, cross-country ski trails and winter hiking trails pass by the door; the ski slopes and toboggan runs are close at hand.
The youth hostel is housed in a wing of the venerable building dating from the 17th century, while the other sections serve as city offices.
