The youth hostel lies in a rural setting, close to the Lake of Zurich and yet is only 20 minutes’ walk from the small, historic town of Rapperswil.
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 dining room jazzy, the seating corner classic, the foyer rustic, the day room busy. French esprit combined with sophisticated flair, makes many hearts beat faster in Montreux.
