Discover Interlaken by bike

Our wellnessHostel3000 Laax takes care of the relaxation afterwards.


Basel - the perfect youth hostel for an exciting city break

With versatile indoor options, city trips are particularly practical when the meteorologists are forecasting rather modest weather. They are also suitable for travelling by train, so CO2 saving; Basel is in no way inferior to this. Natalie, however, is particularly enthusiastic about the lively diversity and thinks you should plan your next city trip to the vibrant city on the Rhine. Read her blog post to find out why.
