A good part of day-to-day activities take place outdoors at the "Palagiovani". Make yourself comfortable at a "grigliata" in the inner courtyard, in the shade of the pergola or the palm trees in the garden.
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.
