Outdoor hotel rooms in the Swiss Alps: Spending the night in unobstructed views of majestic landscape
Two Swiss conceptual artists are offering seven open air "hotel rooms" this summer across a "performance space" encompassing eastern Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Guests "perform", without an audience, by spending the night in a double bed with unobstructed views of majestic landscape.
The services of a white-gloved "modern butler" - often a local farmer in jeans and Wellington boots - are included in the 295 Swiss francs (USD 300)-a-night cost. Created by twin brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin and partner Daniel Charbonnier, the "Zero Real Estate" project aims to explode traditional approaches to hospitality in the country known for its luxurious mountain and lakeside resorts.
