Your sport – our offer

  • Football

    Are you planning your next football camp, training camp or a trip with your football club? Our youth hostels are close to various football pitches with artificial and natural grass. Whether you fancy high-altitude training or a southern climate, we offer a wide variety of locations. In many places we work with local operators and with camp providers from the football sector. Further information on indoor training can be found in the section on indoor sport.

  • Indoor sport

    From ball games like volleyball, basketball and floorball to gymnastics: the following youth hostels are located very close to a sports hall and are ideal for any indoor sport. In some cases, these are multi-sports facilities or three-zone sports halls. Whether for training camps, competitions or team trips, our youth hostels offer the perfect setting for sports groups.

  • Swimming

    Do you want to take your swimming team to the next level and do you need a 50 m pool for this? We have youth hostels throughout Switzerland that are located close to an Olympic-size pool. For other swimming courses or pool-based sports, smaller pools and reductions on the entry price are also available in many places. In our two wellness hostels in Saas-Fee and Laax, there are even indoor pools in the youth hostel. Many hostels also offer a drying room for training materials.

  • Tennis

    Some of our youth hostels are situated right by a tennis court. They are ideally located for a tennis camp or a group trip for a tennis tournament. Whether you are interested in high-altitude training in Valais or a more central offering in the middle of Switzerland, our portfolio is as extensive as Switzerland’s tennis facilities. In many places, we collaborate with partners for indoor and outdoor training and round off your group trip perfectly with our infrastructure.

  • Athletics

    Optimal running training begins not far from our youth hostels. Various sports facilities that are suitable for athletics can be found close to our hostels. For those who prefer being out in the wild, the remaining network of youth hostels also offers numerous options. Your stay will be rounded off perfectly by the onsite infrastructure, be it a laundry service or flexible meal planning.

  • Skating/Ice hockey

    Are you planning for a curling camp, an ice hockey match or a figure skating competition? We offer ideal group accommodation close to ice rinks for any group activities on the ice. Many centres offer training opportunities throughout the year. In our youth hostels we also have storage space for training equipment, and in many places we have parking spaces for buses and cars, if travelling by public transport is not possible.

  • Cross-country skiing

    It’s not just worth travelling to the mountains for downhill skiing! Many of our youth hostels are situated in winter sports venues with an attractive network of cross-country ski runs. In some cases, the cross-country ski run and centre are right by the hostel or just a short distance away. Cross-country skiing equipment can be stored in the ski room, and spacious rooms are available for training meetings. In many locations, local partnerships are in place with cross-country ski centres and rental options exist.

  • Watersports

    The following hostels are located by lakes and are ideally situated for rowing, sailing, canoeing or stand-up paddleboarding. Our youth hostels can be found by Switzerland’s most beautiful lakes and are inviting venues for all kinds of water sports. Thanks to our infrastructure, we are the perfect partner for a successful group outing on the water. In some cases, we even rent out the necessary equipment onsite, or we at least know what can be found at a reasonable price and where.

  • Beach volleyball

    Summertime is beach volleyball time. Does your volleyball club want to shift its training outside and organise a beach volleyball camp? Or perhaps you’re training for a beach volleyball tournament? This is perfectly possible in the following locations. The youth hostels are located close by facilities and offer everything you need for the perfect group trip and numerous additional activities.

  • Inddor climbing

    Our mountain youth hostels are ideally situated as base camps for the most spectacular mountain ascents and climbing adventures. However, we also have various youth hostels located close to indoor climbing centres, providing the perfect complement to nature. In some cases, these can be found in the middle of towns and cities.
