Obsessions | Indoor Caravan Hotel

25 Aug

I love the idea of camping, really I do. “Ahhh nature,” I think to myself… And then as soon as I’m setting up the tiny, mildewy tent atop what seems to be the largest number of shallowly-buried rocks and twigs and most likely the most active home of snakes and creepy crawlies known to man… It’s all campfires and water rafting and fun until I’m ready to use the bathroom or brush my teeth (or god forbid actually sleep), and then the harsh reality sets in. I decide that, actually, I hate camping. And you know what? I don’t feel bad about it at all, because I have options.

Which is where this awesome place meets me half way. Das Huttenpalast Hotel. Translated, it means the Hut Palace hotel, and this is the only kind of camping I want to do from now on! What’s up BERLIN!  How cute is this place? I’ll be staying here the next time I’m in Germany, I can tell you that! Das Huttenpalast refurbishes ye olde campers and cottages and charges 40-60 Euro a night to stay in a camper, cottage, or room (for the tamer people).  Visitors get all the fun out of sleeping in a camper and none of the annoyance or discomfort of actual camping. Win-win! I love the trees!!! For more on this awesome place (that apparently is also really proud of their rhubarb juice spritzers!), check out their website. The way the German is translated is really fun to read.

    I love it! I also hate camping, mostly because I refuse to pee anywhere that isn’t a proper toilet.

    I’m glad to hear that someone else shares my distaste for camping. No showers? No thanks.

    These little campers are adorable. Good job, Germans.
