Jugendherberge Richterswil

  • Hostel
Hornstrasse 5 - 8805 Richterswil - Horgen - Switzerland

A holiday paradise

Richterswil might know a few around the world. But anyone who has found the little place on Lake Zurich will have fond memories of their stay in the youth hostel. The converted modern building lies alongside the lake in a beautiful, spacious park. The former silk factory is perfect for sports holidays, conferences and events of any kind. And who wants to explore Zurich but would rather live in the bustling metropolis in the countryside, goes best with the S-Bahn to Richterswil.

Whether you spend just one night or stay a few days: the Horn you will find a little holiday paradise. Water lovers swim, row, sail, windsurf and dive almost on the doorstep. Art and culture will make their way to Einsiedeln, the important place of pilgrimage with its impressive Benedictine monastery. Globetrotters will value the short distance to the lively metropolis of Zurich, but also the peace and quiet after an exhausting day in the city.
