Freedom returns to this former prison...

... the freedom of travelling & discovering with a social
atmosphere, privacy and the "Chur Way of Life"!

The idea

The Bogentrakt Hostel...

... brings freedom back to the Sennhof, Chur and will be the accommodation in Grison's capital that offers freedom, privacy, social atmosphere and the "Chur Way of Life".

The former correctional facility Sennhof is located in Chur, the capital of Switzerland's arguably most beautiful canton: Grisons. It will be turned into a complex with space for conduminiums, cluster flats, small businesses, ateliers, a welcoming culinary offer and in the middle of it all: A cutting edge hostel.

Our hostel offers additional value for locals such as reasonably priced guest rooms and hotel services for future tenants of the flats at the new Sennhof. We are aiming to welcome and get across the "Chur Way of Life" to our guests starting from the beginning of 2023.


We will bring back freedom to the Sennhof. The freedom of travelling & discovering. Our hostel offers you freedom of choice: Would you just like to have a reasonably priced bed in one of our dorms or should it rather be one of our more comfortable double rooms? Are you not functioning without breakfast in the morning or is a simple coffee to go enough for you? The Bogentrakt Hostel offers you inexpensive basic accommodation and optional extras to add.


Stuffed 20 bed-dorms are a thing of the past! Our dormitories offer you capsule-like beds for increased privacy and comfort. A major improvement to the wobbly bunk beds you can still find at many hostels.

Social atmosphere... what defines a good hostel. You meet other travelers from around the world and discover the beautiful surroundings with them. Our common rooms and guest events strive to connect guests and form a unique travel experience.

The Chur Way of Life

At our hostel the world meets Chur and Chur meets the world. We lend a hand and connect our guests to locals. True to the maxim: "Be a local, not a tourist".
