Located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Jungfrau region, the Mountain Hostel Gimmelwald is simply love at first sight. Buzzing with travellers from around the world, it is quite common to come here for a day and stay for weeks. With perfect access to the many hiking trails from our front door, we also make a great base for outdoor activities such as paragliding, rafting, via ferrata, and more.

The space
An exceptional hostel in a unique location. The in-house restaurant / bar is a meeting place for locals and travelers. Self-catering kitchen, lounge, restaurant and hosts who are looking forward to your visit await you in the midst of the snow-covered mountain peaks.

The hostel seems to attract a certain kind of people – sociable and cosmopolitan people from all over the world, who like to be outdoors in nature.
The relaxed atmosphere between the guests regularly leads to lifelong friendships.
In the evenings, you often meet for games, small - and larger - jam sessions and to exchange adventures and ideas for the next day.
Hiking, paragliding, climbing, swimming in the mountain lake, skiing, snowshoeing, sledging, ski tours... every season offers you the direct outdoor experience on site.
Whether you're visiting us for the first time or you're already in the hostel family, the Mountain Hostel will be the highlight of your trip and an unforgettable experience.
