The youth hostel is located at the edge of the town, in a former quarry. The River Birs flows nearby, the forest and the nature reserve are close at hand.
The hostel lies on the edge of the forest and is a splendid base from which to engage in sporting activities of every kind. The lake, sports centre and indoor swimming pool are close at hand.
Embedded between the blue lake and the green forest Romanshorn is the ideal starting-point to discover the biking-holiday-country Thurgau.
