Our mascot

Our mascot

May we present?

Introducing the Swiss Youth Hostels’ new mascot! Our new mascot delighted visitors of all ages when they made their first big appearance at the family festival in Richterswil where they were officially christened «Tanneli». The sun was shining at the festival, which took place on the shores of the lake.


Painting fun for young artists

Tanneli travels a lot and loves staying in our hostels and trying out the activities in the areas around our hostels. In our new mini colouring book, you can find out what Tanneli does in their free time and use your imagination as you colour the pictures in.

About Tanneli

Tanneli loves hiking, stand-up paddleboarding and in winter they absolutely love skiing. Would you like to get to know our cute mascot in person? We’ll keep you up to date on upcoming appearances on our event page.
