Dubbed as one of the scariest hotel pools in the world, Hotel Hubertus in South Tyrol, Italy, invites guests to swim 40 feet above the ground. The 82-foot-long pool overlooks the Dolomites for striking views of the landscape. A glass panel at the edge gives a clear view without too much obstruction. The architecture was designed to interweave the view and the sky for a blended panoramic scene. There are five additional heated pools and seven saunas.

 

Hotel Hubertus is a relaxing getaway any time of the year, but makes a fantastic destination for skiers in the winter months. Hiking and nature lovers can explore the mountains in the warmer months with nine hiking areas to choose from. Sixty rooms are available at the 4-star accommodations at the spot where three natural parks meet: Franes-Sennes-Prags, Rieserferner-Ahrn and Puez Geisler.

 

The hotel also features a fitness bar, wellness center, breakfast buffet, afternoon snacks, bike rentals, guided programming and sauna infusions. Guests can enjoy WiFi, hiking equipment and shuttle services free of charge.
