Richterswil Youth Hostel


Recommended by Switzerland Tourism

The family-friendly hostel on the shores of Zurich’s lake is just a few minutes away from the station on foot. Housed in a historic building dating back as far as 1841, the edifice was transformed into a modern hostel around 20 years ago. The hostel comprises 27 rooms with 2 to 4 beds, seminar infrastructure, cosy garden restaurant beneath chestnut trees in summer and children’s playground in an extensive park area. The hostel building is wheelchair accessible.

Swimming with mountain views! Spacious park beside the hostel with various stepways to the water and sunbathing lawn with shady trees. The public Seebad bathing area and boat station is just a few minutes away on foot - and it’s only 8 kilometres to the fantastic Alpamare water park in Pfäffikon. On Sundays the natural spring fountain’s 100-meter-high water jet is quite something too.
