Holidays in Ticino with a difference – sleep at the foot of a medieval fortress listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site!



Montebello Youth Hostel is part of a large villa with a breathtaking backdrop and an eventful history. Castello di Montebello, one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Switzerland and part of an impressive fortress which is classed as a World Heritage site, rises majestically right behind the hostel. A private school and boarding school for girls until the early 1990s, these days primary and secondary school pupils enter and leave the building alongside our guests. The hostel's peaceful location away from the daily hustle and bustle of the transport hub of Bellinzona is just as advantageous as its proximity to the historic town centre and the train station, where it's easy to start a trip to Swissminiatur.
