Known as the Riviera of Central Switzerland, you can lie under palm trees, marvel at mountain peaks or hire a canoe right in front of Gersau Youth Hostel.



Rotschuo Hostel in Gersau will ensure you have a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle. Right next to Lake Lucerne, with the "queen of mountains" forming the backdrop, you can recharge your batteries, enjoy a refreshing swim or cross the waves by boat. Sports activities such as canoe trips, hiking or winter fun on the slopes also draw people to the area. A "Mount Rigi South Side Safari" or a visit to the historic Crossbow Workshop are particularly exciting. The hostel in the idyllic cove is particularly suitable for school classes, family parties or group get-togethers.
