Welcome to the Dynamo Youth Hostel

Located on the south-East slope of the “Petit Ballon” Mount, the Dynamo Youth Hostel proposes three dormitories, giving you the opportunity to stay overnight in this beautiful chalet. Dynamo is open to all persons interested in spending time in a wonderful natural setting, enjoying great views on the valley.

Our hostel is open all weekends (from 3 pm on Saturday until 4 pm on Sunday) and during the French school holidays of the "B Zone" (Strasbourg).

Dynamo is located at an altitude of 1100 metres and can only be reached on foot (counting at least 30 minutes’ walk from the nearest parking). You can reach the hostel either through the Guebwiller or through the Munster valleys. In order to prepare your journey, please consult the  "where we are" section.

The hostel is managed by a team of volunteers with a vision based on sustainable social development. It does not provide any meal, but an equipped kitchen is at your disposal. You therefore have to bring along all your food and take down your waste. The house can accommodate 29 persons. The hostel functions in an environment-friendly way: solar panels (no electric plugs or devices), waste sorting and no motorised access. You can have a general view on the place if you click HERE.
