There are perhaps only a few people in the whole world who have heard of Richterswil. But anyone discovering the little town on Lake Zurich will doubtless have fond memories of their stay in the youth hostel.
The recently converted building is situated right on the lake, in a beautiful and extensive park. This former silk factory is a perfect place for sports holidays, conferences and events of all kinds. What's more, the S-Bahn link to Richterswil is ideal for people who want to get to know Zurich but would rather live in the country than the busy city.
Regardless of whether you want to stay just one night or several days, you will find a little holiday paradise at the Horn. Water babies can go swimming, rowing, windsurfing and diving virtually outside the door. Bon viveurs can take a cruise on the boats of Lake Zurich.
