Property Description

Fancy staying somewhere steeped in Swiss history? The 900-year-old castle boasts a museum, restaurant and youth hostel – it’s all ready and waiting for you to explore!

Burgdorf Castle, a heritage site of national significance, has stood sentinel on the rocks above the Emme for 900 years. Having seen many changes over the years, the castle is set to be completely opened up to the public for the first time on 26 April 2020. The museum, which runs educational programmes for schools, is now joined by a room for wedding ceremonies, our youth hostel and the castle restaurant.

So whether you’re looking for a venue for a wedding or a party, a stunning place to stay or an educational experience, the castle, remodelled by the Zähringens in around 1200, is your perfect choice. Experiencing history first hand, you may feel like you’ve strayed onto the set of ‘Night at the Museum’. And with a special room for wedding ceremonies, a wedding suite and a fine banqueting hall, we have everything you need to celebrate your big day in fitting style.

Beautiful hostel! The views are incredible! Located at the top of a hill, very tiring walk but so worth it when you make it to the top! There’s a nice swimming pool close by at the bottom of the hill and also a restaurant directly beside the hostel on top of the hill also. Highly recommend this hostel!!
