Outside area and house Zofingen Youth Hostel



Switzerland's main transport routes all cross near Zofingen. That has always been the case. As a result, lots of construction and trade took place in the locality of the House of Frohburg. If you're interested in the history of the well-preserved old town, you should view the alleyways and buildings on a night watchman or market woman tour – along with the monumental fountain which commemorates the actions of the Schultheiss (mayor) Niklaus Thut, who died saving the banner of Zofingen during the battle of Sempach. Even these days, all kinds of heroes have something to celebrate, namely at the annual children's festival, the Heitere Open Air Festival, and Powerman, the world's toughest duathlon.
