The abandoned hotel in Switzerland “revives” today on social networks … with some thrills

Italian Article on press journal “Il Messaggero

The Photographer Luca Oliveri shared with his followers a clip about this abandoned hotel in Switzerland «This hotel was built in 1882 and is now abandoned. Its charm scares me and seduces me at the same time. Would you spend a night here alone?

The hotel in question is the Belvédère Hotel and is located in the Furka Pass. Here has been shot the famous scene of 007 – Goldfinger, with James Bond (Sean Connery) on a secret mission in these enchanted places …

Since the end of the 19th century, when the Furka Pass road was built, tourists have flocked to the hotel for its panoramic views over the icy landscape. The glacier was once only a 600-foot walk from the hotel and a 300-foot long grotto carved into the glacier allowed guests to journey inside.

As the glacier moves farther away from the pass, fewer people visit and the hotel closed indefinitely. Drivers still stop to take pictures of the building and its mountainous backdrop. The building now sits with its doors and windows boarded up, a testament to the passage of time and climate change. 

So Would you spend a night here alone?
