There are perhaps only a few people in the whole world who have heard of Richterswil. But anyone discovering the little town on Lake Zurich will doubtless have fond memories of their stay in the youth hostel. The recently converted building is situated right on the lake, in a beautiful and extensive park. This former silk factory is a perfect place for sports holidays, conferences and events of all kinds. What's more, the S-Bahn link to Richterswil is ideal for people who want to get to know Zurich but would rather live in the country than the busy city.

Regardless of whether you want to stay just one night or several days, you will find a little holiday paradise at the Horn. Water babies can go swimming, rowing, windsurfing and diving virtually outside the door. Bon viveurs can take a cruise on the boats of Lake Zurich. Lovers of art and culture will make their way to Einsiedeln, an important place of pilgrimage with an impressive Benedictine monastery. Globetrotters will value its proximity to the lively metropolis of Zurich, and yet enjoy the opportunity to relax after an exhausting day in the city.

A wonderful place to live at. The lady at reception namely Presticha ( I m sorry if spelled incorrectly) was really courteous, polite and has a infectious smile. A memorable stay. Would love to come again.
