Our friendly hostel welcomes bikers, hikers, inline skaters, water sports fans and relaxation seekers to the port town of Romanshorn.

Outside view Romanshorn Youth Hostel with benks



Sitting in a lakeside café on the shimmering waters of Lake Constance and looking out towards Germany, you have the lake shore in front of you, the forest behind you – and the perfect accommodation just around the corner. From here, you can start a number of action-packed tours, as the youth hostel is situated near signposted cycling, skating and hiking routes. Or there are other adventures beckoning, by bus, rail or boat: how about a round trip of the port or the lake? Or an excursion to the water castle of Hagenwil? And where do fans of historic locomotives meet? In Locorama, of course – an exciting place where you can still view the former locomotive shed and the historic signal box.
