Château-d’Oex and its surroundings are a feast for the eyes in both summer and winter. Especially if you can enjoy the panoramic view from up high in a hot air balloon.

Exterior view of Château-d'Oex Youth Hostel



Right in the heart of the Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut Regional Nature Park and surrounded by beautifully decorated chalets, our Château-d’Oex Group Youth Hostel is the perfect place for school and sports camps. The diverse mountainous landscape is considered a paradise for fans of year-round outdoor sports, and rightly so because the range of activities is enormous: canyoning, river rafting, biking, hiking, skiing and other winter sports, hot air balloon flights and much, much more. Families can take advantage of special attractions for children, such as an adventure-filled treasure hunt or a themed trail about ants.
