Every room and guest kitchen has a key. It is up to you if you want to use one. The deposit for a key is CHF 40.00 and you will get the money back upon returning the key. For leaders, it is also possible to put the deposit on the bill, so you don’t have to worry about having cash on you.


We have several communal rooms and areas available. Our shared common rooms are the Eco Adventure Room, the High Adventure Room (includes a fireplace), the Main Hall (includes a fireplace) and International Friendship Room. These rooms must be booked in advance and are rented for your exclusive use for a daily rate. Meeting and seminar rooms can also be booked in advance by groups (outside of summer). Please contact Reception for more details and room availability.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the Old and New Chalet, Kanderlodge and Sunneblick. The Campsite and the Tower do not have a direct Wi-Fi connection. 

We have a limited amount of guest lockers available in our Old Chalet and on the Campsite for storing your valuables. There is a CHF 40.00 deposit on the key.

We have a small shop in our Main Chalet selling souvenirs, ice cream, snacks and some soft drinks. We accept Swiss Francs. We also accept certain foreign currencies, but only take notes. These are US Dollars, British Pounds and Euros. Our shop also accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express.

All the water running from the taps and fountains around the Centre is drinking water. However, DO NOT drink river water - glacial minerals are dangerous and can seriously damage your body! We also ask that you do NOT swim in the river Kander as the river is dangerous; the water is very cold and the current is very strong. 

Recycling is our top priority at KISC. If you stay in our indoor accommodation, you will find recycling stations all around the buildings. If you stay in our campsite, you will be provided with a recycling kit to collect your recycling, trash and food waste before bringing it to the recycling centre during the opening hours.
