This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel.

Winterthur is a relatively old city, as the first settlements here are estimated to have been in the Bronze Age. Later, it was part of the Roman Empire, the Habsburg Empire, and the city of Zurich; it was even conquered by Napoleon for a short time before it became part of today’s Switzerland.

With just more than a hundred thousand inhabitants, Winterthur is the sixth-largest city in Switzerland. The train station is the third busiest in Switzerland and the Zurich Airport lies only fifteen kilometers southwest.

Winterthur is not a major tourist destination -- a lot of people prefer to stay in Zurich, but it is really not hard to visit as it is well connected with Zurich. Winterthur has the Museum Oskar Reinhart with about six hundred works by German, Swiss, and Austrian artists from the eighteenth to twentieth century; you can also visit the Winterthur Art Museum with a Swiss modern art collection, exhibiting groups of works from the late nineteenth century to the present. A very curious place to visit is the Swiss Science Center Technorama -- the only science center in Switzerland, with an exhibition area of more than six thousand square meters and more than five hundred experimental stations. Generally, Winterthur is not a bad place to visit for a short trip.

Winterthur hostels are few in number and they have the usual-for-Switzerland high prices. Nevertheless, you can be almost sure that for your money you will receive good service at your Winterthur hostel. Winterthur is very close to Zurich and if you cannot find a place to stay there, you can book a hostel in Winterthur and commute to Zurich. Hostels in Winterthur are quite centrally located and you can easily reach them from the train or the bus station.
