«100 years of Swiss Youth Hostels – savouring, slumbering, adventuring together»

1. March to 29 December 2024 at Burgdorf Castle Museum.



Why were the Swiss Youth Hostels founded in the first place? How did our guests sleep 100 years ago? And what influence did backpackers from the USA have on the organisation?  

Get to the bottom of these questions in the exciting and compact museum exhibition. The Swiss Youth Hostels are part of Swiss cultural history. Now, their 100-year success story has been brought to life. 

Look forward to an excursion through the history of sustainable architecture, listen to the stories of our guests, embark on a journey through time and be surprised. We look forward to your visit!
