If you’re scared of heights then this won’t be for you, but a proposal to build a new hotel directly into a cliff in Norway has everyone talking. The idea is to add a hotel to Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, a 1982ft cliff in southern Norway that’s a popular tourist spot.
And what better way to show off the cliff?
The design will see the hotel built into the side of Preikestolen cliff with dramatic views
There’s three floors of guest rooms, all with amazing views. The entrance to the hotel is on top of the cliff, with a jaw-dropping viewing platform. There would also be a swimming pool that extends out over the edge.
While the cliff hotel is just an idea at the moment, it would surely be a bucket list attraction if built. Preikestolen is a four-hour return hike from Preikestolhytta Vandrerhjem, but is usually only accessible from April-September.
The area is popular with hikers, and has views of mountains and fjords. The hotel would provide accommodation for travellers and become a destination in its own right.
As for us? We would be happy simply relaxing in that unique pool…
The hotel was designed by designed by Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio in Istanbul.
