The invisible hotel, Sweden

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Now ask yourself, if a hotel room is built in the forest and no one is able to see it, does it really exist?

The Treehotel in northern Sweden has an invisible room. Built high in the trees and completely clad in mirrors, it reflects the forest and the sky so that it disappears into the landscape. Well, almost.
The Mirrorcube’s interior is luxurious, with 360º windows and a roof terrace. The other rooms are equally unusual, ranging from a giant nest to a lego-like structure. There’s even a tree-top sauna.

Access to the Mirrorcube is via a rope bridge. That, you’ll be glad to know, is entirely visible.
