New youth hostel in Burgdorf Castle
The conversion project “Unser Schloss – jetzt für alle offen!” (Our castle – now open to all!) is a proud landmark for the city of Burgdorf – for local visitors as well as day and overnight guests. To the great delight of Swiss Youth Hostels, a youth hostel will soon be constructed within these 1000-year-old walls. “We are proud to be a part of this groundbreaking project,” said CEO Fredi Gmür. The new hostel will be open all year round and will offer space for around 120 guests, with a mix of six, four, family and double rooms, as well as spacious lounge rooms for solo travellers and families, as well as for groups, clubs and schools. Swiss Youth Hostels will be beginning detailed planning in the coming months, together with the city of Burgdorf and other partners.
