Formerly the summer residence of an industrial family from Berne, Leissigen Youth Hostel is now a holiday oasis, offering stylish, comfortable rooms, many with a lake view. The youth hostel, otherwise known as "Albert Wander Haus" is situated in the idyllic little village of Leissigen, right on the Lake of Thun. There's plenty of space for children to play and for adults to relax in its wide open surroundings and on its pebble beach. An ideal location for family holidays, the hostel also has its very own private beach.

Stretch out on a sun lounger, and glance occasionally in the direction of the lake to check what the children are up to in the water. Incidentally, the lake is ideal for swimming or surfing, feeding the ducks or butterfly-watching – nature surrounds you here in its purest form.
Barbecue parties are sometimes held in the garden at dinner times, and a very special evening is guaranteed when the full moon shines over the lake.
