Richterswil Youth Hostel

The beautifully located hostel with conference and meeting rooms can also be booked for multi-day conventions.

Built in 1855 as a silk weaving factory, the magnificent building on the Richterswiler Horn was transformed into a youth hostel in 1992. Surrounded by a beautiful park, the stately house located on Lake Zurich has been modernized and is equipped with the necessary infrastructure for conferences, meetings, and events of all kinds. The restaurant seats up to 95 guests and offers in-house catering services for seated dinners or cocktail parties.

The charming terrace and easy access to the lake invite to active and sociable moments among colleagues.
