Switzerland’s new Million Stars Hotel project has us dreaming of the stars.
The reopening of borders has inspired Switzerland Tourism to open up the skies to visitors this summer.
With 50 “rooms” dotted around the country offering private and unobstructed views of the starry night skies, guests can now choose to overnight in some of the most unusual places.
Not only do the stays offer spectacular views of Switzerland’s finest natural landscapes and cityscapes, guests will also enjoy the experience of the overnight space itself. Whether the locations feature views of the mountains, lakes, rivers, the countryside or cities, the stays come in all shapes, sizes and forms including gondolas, bubble tents, pods, tree tents, huts, exposed beds, rooftops and more.
Specially selected by the team at Switzerland Tourism for their extraordinary characteristics and locales, 33 of these “rooms” are also conveniently situated along the Grand Tour of Switzerland.
“Forget about counting sheep,” says Martin Nydegger, CEO of Switzerland Tourism. “During the Swiss summers, people can now enjoy counting stars from the comfort of these cosy rooms instead. This is relaxation at its purest!”
Designed to complement the existing product offerings in terms of getting “back to nature” the Million Stars Hotel project also aims to encourage visitors to explore the lesser-known areas of Switzerland, offering them a different and even more intimate experience.
Available from now until the end of October 2020, the Million Stars Hotel will be open for booking again in summer 2021.
