So you want to be one with nature… but youre not too keen on bundling up in a sleeping bag.
This hotel might suit you better: Its a mashup of the joy of sleeping under the stars and resting in a cosy hotel bed.
Zero Real Estates Schwendi Suite is a hotel room thats free of walls, windows, and a roof, set in the secluded forest of Wildhaus, Toggenburg, in the Swiss Alps.
Its the creation of Swiss concept artists Frank and Patrik Riklin, who we imagine thought could save some money on buying artwork for the walls by just letting guests see the incredible surrounding views instead.
Those who stay begin by checking in at the nearby Hotel Alpenrose (which has walls and a roof, dont worry). From there, a butler will escort guests directly to their room.
You know, their room without walls, set high above the Toggenburg valley.
As youd expect, the views are pretty impressive; all mountains and the sparkling Lake Schewndisee with a forest canopy above.
The benefits are obvious. You get to breathe in the fresh Swiss air, take in the views, and sleep under the stars.
But we do have concerns about getting dressed in the morning (youd feel a bit exposed, surely), as well as the risk of birds flying overhead to make a surprise delivery.
Thankfully, guests wont be too far away from other comforts. You can walk straight from your room to the hotels sauna and spa, and every morning a butler will deliver a breakfast basket straight to your bed.
Sounds dreamy, right?
Booking a stay may have to remain a dream, mind you, as the room regularly has waiting lists of over 4,500 people. Oh.
Feel free to recreate a less impressive version of the experience by moving a campbed into your parents back garden.
