Reka holiday village Urnaesch
Holiday village in natural surroundings in the Appenzell regionAppenzellerstrasse 11 , 9107 Urnäsch, Switzerland
Your holiday home in the charming Appenzell region
At 852 metres above sea level, at the foot of the steeply rising Säntis, lies Urnäsch, your home for great family holidays in summer and winter. The stately Appenzell village has retained its original character. Well-kept cultural landscapes, an intact environment and thriving customs make Urnäsch a showcase for gentle, sustainable tourism. We also live among nature in the Reka Holiday Village. Here you can spend wonderful holidays with animals and as farmers, in the hayloft and in the middle of the petting zoo. Your children will love it!
Hiking, biking, snow sports, horse riding, themed trails, alpine ski runs, visits to farmers and forest rangers, traditional string music and interesting museums ... In the Appenzell hinterland there is always something exciting going on. And in the holiday village too there is no chance of boredom. We have an indoor swimming pool, sand and water playgrounds, table tennis, table football, billiards, darts, beach volleyball, mini football and a treasure trove of Ravensburger games. And in the sauna with its relaxation room you can enjoy well-earned breaks. Because holidays with us are also holidays for parents. At the Rekalino Club we take care of the kids, with a great programme of activities for all ages, all included in the price.
In the Reka holiday village Urnäsch, 50 families find a cosy holiday home in the Minergie-Eco houses, which were built from local wood. The attractive wooden holiday apartements offer a relaxed atmosphere.
In our small animal stable and mini petting zoo, children get the chance to get up close and personal with the animal inhabitants of the holiday village. The children can come into contact with different animals, feed them, stroke them and get to know them better. Experiences like these are what the children will remember for a long time - often for a lifetime!
We take great pleasure in welcoming the whole family.

What our clients say
About the location
Urnäsch, the stately village on the river of the same name in Appenzell Ausserrhoden, lies at the foot of the steeply rising Säntis, embedded in the green pastures of the hilly landscape. In the Appenzell hinterland, old customs are still lived and celebrated with pride. The lively town leads an active economic life, but has retained its rural character and early on focused on gentle, family-friendly tourism. Its famous, picturesque village square invites you to linger, and many hiking trails, restaurants and attractions make time fly by.
About the region
Eastern Switzerland is not the largest, but certainly one of the most diverse holiday regions in Switzerland. In Toggenburg you will be amazed by the mountains and largely untouched nature. The Appenzell region is famous for its landscape and customs as well as its cheese culture. St Gallen is regarded as an economic and cultural centre and is famous for its long-standing textile tradition, its car-free old town and its collegiate church and library, which are listed as a world heritage site. On clear and clean Lake Constance you can enjoy every possible kind of water activity, and the area is also very well set up for cycling.
