There is a hotel with a panoramic mountain view over the Alps, offering free accommodation to its guests. But to benefit from this hotel at zero cost it is necessary to climb a mountain first.

Located at 2,529 meters above sea level, on a cliff of the Julian Alps in Italy, the hotel is a tribute to climber Luca Vuerich, who died in an avalanche while climbing a waterfall.

Due to the high location, the materials for its construction, mainly wood, had to be transported by helicopter to the place.

The hotel takes the form of a tent and space for nine beds to house explorers of the Ceria-Merlone rail. The lodge was built manually by 12 people in a single day, including members of the Vuerich family and other volunteers.

The design is by the architect Giovanni Pescamosca. Whether it be winter or summer, the explorers of this Julian Alps trail will always have a refuge to shelter.
