For schools

We offer comfortable accommodation, first-class facilities and numerous interesting options for school trips and school camps.

Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do – at Swiss Youth Hostels, you’ll find the right place with unbeatable value for money.

School camps provide the ideal setting for conveying curricular content in a special way.

Spending time together away from the classroom creates a new sense of community and fosters social skills.

Cohesion within the class is reinforced, while the mutual trust between students and teachers is enhanced.
