About Youthhostel Avenches

Avenches is set between the Vully vineyards and above the plain of the Broye river, that connects the lakes of Murten and Neuchâtel. This historic Roman settlement features plenty of ancient buildings and sites that take visitors far back in time.

The imposing building that houses the youth hostel, built in the style of the Neuchâtel farmhouses, accommodates cyclists, hikers, history buffs, families and horse-riders alike. The town centre is within easy walking distance, and the beautiful landscape surrounding the hostel promises pure relaxation. While the children will be in seventh heaven playing in the large garden, adults can enjoy a fine glass of wine on the terrace.

After extensive renovation work, the house is reopend for the summer season, along with a new pavilion containing two guest rooms that satisfy all standards of barrier-free travelling. In addition, the guest rooms, foyer and reception area are refurbished and updated.
