Where time seems to stand still: Stein am Rhein in the beautiful Blauburgunderland region is proud of the splendid painted façades of its houses.

Exterior view and building Stein am Rhein Youth Hostelein

Stein am Rhein


You can see all the main sights from Hohenklingen Castle: on your right, the comfortable youth hostel with its large play area, with the Riipark lido next door; on the opposite bank of the Rhine, a church bell as old as the Swiss Confederation; and on your left, the little town of Stein am Rhein, where you can immerse yourself in history in an instant. Richly decorated façades and church walls, half-timbered houses and bay windows line the Rathausplatz square and the alleyways of the old town, and you can briefly dress as a bourgeois resident from around 1850 in the Lindwurm museum. Back in the present, choose from a large number of biking and hiking routes: either gently along the river or steeply through the hills, depending on your level of fitness.

  • Barrier-free stay

    50 years after their opening the Stein am Rhein Youth Hostel has been renovated. Now, in order to allow barrier-free use of the youth hostel, a lift is being installed and the Swiss Youth Hostels redesigned the entire public area including the reception and food-serving area at the same time. With this conversion and the previous investment in 2006, the youth hostel becomes barrier-free for all day rooms and room types. Thanks to the skilful integration of the necessary conversions, the youth hostel is not only being made more accessible for people with disabilities, it is also becoming more attractive for all guests.

    The project shows in exemplary fashion how well-thought-out solutions can achieve barrier-free access and simultaneously result in improved operation that benefits all guests, thus creating added value.
