About us


The Gästehaus & Jugendhotel am See (Guest House & Youth Hotel by the Lake) is situated on the Höri peninsula right on the lake side
of Lake Constance. Embedded in a unique holiday landscape, it offers perfect conditions for water and land sports activities…
Recreation and adventure included.

From the part of Lake Constance called Zeller See to the west you have a clear view of the extinct volcanoes of the Hegau region, which
are especially impressive in the twilight of sunset. In the other direction – looking east – in fine weather you have a full view of the scenery
of the Alps. Lake Constance is a wonderful and varied water sports region offering opportunities for everyone.

For example, you can start for a canoe tour right from the hotel and let yourself drift down the river Rhine from Stein am Rhein to the town
of Schaffhausen boasting Europe’s largest waterfall. Our place is also an excellent starting point for extensive cycling and hiking tours on
a well-developed network of routes. And of course the lake always invites you for swimming and diving.
