In the calm tranquility of the Swiss Alps lies the newest venture by hoteliers Frank and Patrick Riklin. There are no walls, roofs, or even a bathroom but there is a butler on hand to welcome new guests and serve them coffee and salami sandwiches.

The Null Stern, which in German means “The Zero Stars,” encourages guests to sleep in an exposed bed above the Swiss town of Graubünden, enjoying panoramic alpine views while you doze off to the twinkle of the stars overhead. Amenities are sparse with just a double bed, nightstand and lamps – and the nearest bathroom is a public toilet a 10-minute walk away.

For the cost of 250 Sfr ($254) per night, guests can be immersed in nature at 6,463 feet above sea level every night between spring and fall, but bookings can be cancelled at the last minute if the weather is bad.

Head over to the hotel’s website for more information.

For more spectacular accommodation, OFF is Paris’s first floating hotel bar.
