‘Million Stars’ Swiss hotels

This item appears on page 41 of the January 2021 issue.

Visitors to Switzerland can book a room in any of 50-plus “Million Stars” hotels. In varying environments around the country, each of the “hotels” (each actually one double-bed accommodation) must meet certain star-gazing criteria to be considered a Million Stars hotel. The “room” must offer unimpeded views of the sky, which means being entirely outside, under a glass roof or surrounded by a clear pod.

A stay at a Million Stars hotel can be booked July through October, depending on the location and type of accommodation. Only a single overnight for up to two people can be booked at each location; breakfast is included. Alternate accommodations are required for “rooms” that are weather-dependent.
