Austria’s vast mountain ranges are awe-inspiring, and nestled on a hillside in Nußdorf/Debant, near Lienz, is an architectural marvel that offers a front-row seat to nature’s spectacle. Presenting Ufogel — a 45-square-meter tree house that isn’t just a place to lay your head, but an experience in itself.
Masterfully conceived by Peter Jungmann, this whimsically named dwelling draws inspiration from the German word ‘Vogel,’ meaning bird, and the iconic shape of a UFO. The result? A structure perched on stilts that seems to float amidst the Osttirol landscapes.
But Ufogel isn’t just about unique aesthetics. The family who commissioned it had a clear vision — they wanted a holiday sanctuary that would maximize the jaw-dropping views without disturbing the serenity and sanctity of the environment. And Jungmann delivered.
Crafted predominantly from larch wood, Ufogel’s interiors are a celebration of rustic elegance and modern comfort. The expansive panorama windows act as a canvas, framing the outdoors and ensuring nature always stays close. It’s a space where every sunrise becomes an intimate affair and every sunset a personal spectacle.
The curved timber design draped with traditional shingles doesn’t just offer visual appeal; it cocoons guests in warmth and security. Here, modernity meets nostalgia. The kitchenette boasts contemporary amenities, while the designer shower adds a touch of luxury. Every corner of Ufogel whispers comfort.
However, it’s not just the comforts within that make it special, but the feeling it evokes. Guests often remark how Ufogel feels like a return to the essence of dwelling, a place where you can drift into peaceful slumber, enveloped by the sounds of nature.
So, for those looking to trade city clamor for mountain melodies, Ufogel awaits. A seven-day retreat at this treehouse hotel is priced at a competitive 840€.
