A fine place to enjoy a holiday on Lake Zurich

Richterswil Youth Hostel is located in a former mansion house directly on the tranquil shores of Lake Zurich. Once a residence for the landed gentry, this stately building also housed a bustling silk factory, adding another layer of interest to its unique charm.

The youth hostel and the town of Richterswil are the perfect place for celebrations, seminars or relaxing holidays. Situated directly on the shores of Lake Zurich, it’s a great place to celebrate, hold a conference or simply relax and enjoy some time off. Incidentally, you will often hear locals abbreviating Richterswil to “Richti”.
