Probably the best Hotel in the World

Travelling with imagination

The imaginary hotel is mobile, degradable and regional. It is made from air, sound, the power of imagination – and a field near Bad Mitterndorf.

About the project

Guests book their stay using the hotel portal and are given a headphone system on location – and with this, an individualize audio track that, upon request, can cover the following themes: family fun, business lounges, activities for singles, wellness, relaxation and intimacy or sportsmanship. The audio tracks lead the guests through the hotel and simulate a stay in the region. What is desired of it and how is it marketed?

The “best hotel” has a perfect location: the wild field has a fantastic view of the surrounding mountain ranges. The audio track shifts the perspective: the guests travel to global hotspots in their heads or they travel through the ages. Is this Venice or the Salzkammergut region or Beijing? What makes a place unique and who am I?

Here, people from the region meet up and question experts about the consequences, costs as well as benefits, of tourism for human beings and nature. A meeting place will be initiated with local partners. Regional drinks, served on located by performers and bartenders, will bring the visit to the hotel to a close.
