Beinwil am See lies in idyllic surroundings on the Lake of Hallwil. Ramblers can avoid the protected sections on the shores of Lake of Hallwil by keeping to designated hiking routes. As a result, the Boniswil and Seengen marshes are real paradise for birds, where reeds and a host of waterlilies colour the landscape. Practically every town in this region has castles and fortresses, ruins and churches to attract art lovers. And great value is placed on tradition here: for example, the Ascension Day parade, when riders gallop around the Beromunster is a famous event.

The Beinwil Youth Hostel has eight family rooms, with bunk beds downstairs for two children, and parent accommodation upstairs in the gallery. The accommodation is so comfortable that no-one complains about the showers not being on the same level. There is a beach area immediately adjacent to the youth hostel and with free admission for youth hostel guests. If you enjoy discovering the attraction of a beautiful, tranquil location, this is exactly the right spot for you.
