Bern Youth Hostel in the Marzili district will be welcoming guests with its fresh new look from 29 March 2018. All that remains is its unique location between the Federal Parliament Building and the River Aare.

Berne

Berne

Bern Youth Hostel is becoming worthy of a capital city. Situated in a listed building and with a view of the Aare loop, the hostel may be closed during its complete renovation, but it will be even more inviting when it reopens. Refurbishment work includes an ultra-modern redesign, a bright extension with seminar rooms and a garden seating area. As before, you'll be able to plan activities over lunch or under the trees, including a visit to the square in front of the Federal Parliament Building with its 26 water fountains, the bear park, the Paul Klee centre, the Einstein House or the arcades in the historic old town. And don't miss out on the excitement of swimming in the River Aare or biking on the Gurten mountain!

    Offers

    • Denk an mich
  • For 60 years, we have been welcoming guests and friends to Berne Youth Hostel. The last time the building underwent refurbishment was in 1990. The current condition of the building is therefore only barely satisfactory and no longer in keeping with our standards. In order to be able to offer you a pleasant stay in our wonderful capital city in the years to come, the listed building is to be totally refurbished.

    Here you can receive more information.
