The most unique places to sleep under the stars in Switzerland

In the spirit of holiday dreaming, Switzerland Tourism is inviting travellers to sleep under the stars in some of the country’s most spectacular locations this summer, with the launch of the new Million Stars Hotel.

The concept features 50 new hotel ‘rooms’ scattered throughout the Swiss countryside, all offering uniquely private accommodation with unobstructed views of Switzerland’s finest landscapes and cityscapes.

Designed for two people, the accommodation options come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from bubble tents, tiny houses, exposed outdoor beds, tree tents and even some peculiar objects. 

For instance, guests have the option to stay in a gondola cabin perched in the mountains, a garden beehive with views of Eiger’s north face, a penthouse terrace overlooking Lake Zurich, or open air beds with views stretching from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc.

Each space has been specially selected by Switzerland Tourism based on their extraordinary characteristics and location, with 33 conveniently located along the Grand Tour of Switzerland – a scenic 1600km route through the country’s most beautiful regions. 

“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!”
