Avenches Hostel

Hostel Avenches

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Avenches is set between the Vully vineyards and above the plain of the Broye river, that connects the lakes of Murten and Neuchâtel. This historic Roman settlement features plenty of ancient buildings and sites that take visitors far back in time.

The imposing building that houses the youth hostel accommodates cyclists, hikers, history buffs, families and horse-riders alike. The town centre is within easy walking distance, and the beautiful landscape surrounding the hostel promises pure relaxation. While the children will be in seventh heaven playing in the large garden, adults can enjoy a fine glass of wine on the terrace.

After extensive renovation work, the house is reopend for the summer season, along with a new pavilion containing two guest rooms that satisfy all standards of barrier-free travelling. In addition, the guest rooms, foyer and reception area are refurbished and updated.

Great Swiss breakfast every morning. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Clotheslines in the back for everyone to use. Quiet at night. A little far for a walk from the train station with luggage, but close to 2 bus stops.

Das Leistungs-Preisverhältnis könnte besser sein. Das Frühstück war recht einfach.
