The castle has loomed majestically above the Rhine waterfall for over a thousand years. Today it is a picture-book hostel with 91 beds in rustic rooms.
Formerly the summer residence of an industrial family from Berne right on the Lake of Thun, the hostel is now a holiday oasis, offering stylish, comfortable rooms, many with lake view.
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.
