The way is clear for the new youth hostel in Burgdorf Castle
Yesterday, the Canton of Bern Parliament followed the lead of Burgdorf Town Council by giving its unanimous approval to a state loan for the conversion of Burgdorf Castle. Thanks to these two positive decisions, the way has now been cleared for the Burgdorf town project "Unser Schloss – jetzt für alle offen!” (Our castle – now open to all) and for the new youth hostel within the 1,000-year-old walls. The goal of the project is to make the landmark building accessible to local visitors, day and overnight guests. This is to be achieved through a youth hostel with around 120 beds and a public restaurant together with a modernisation of the castle museums. The opening is scheduled for spring 2019.
