ADAC Reisemagazin
Swiss youth hostels

In Switzerland the common concept of youth hostels is taken to the next level.

Already back in 1994, the Swiss Youth Hostels created a mission statement for balancing its economic, social and ecological activities.

ADAC Reisemagazin had me visit their 4 newest additions, each built as a showcase for contemporary public architecture.
