Das Park Sewage Pipe Hotel in Austria

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

When most people dream about the ultimate vacation destination, we can pretty much guarantee you that sleeping inside a sewage pipe doesn’t top the list. That didn’t stop designer Andreas Strauss from creating a hotel made entirely of just that – giant old sewage pipes.

Crowned the Das Park Hotel, this eco-friendly destination is located in Ottensheim, Austria, and was assembled back in 2004. Each 6.5-foot in diameter pipe features wall paintings by Austrian artist Thomas Latzel Ochoa, and also includes a small window for natural light to enter, double-bed, storage space, and even a small charging station for gadgets and gizmos. While there is no bathroom in the actual room itself, there are shared toilets, showers, cafe, and even a minibar in the surrounding area – there’s even a swimming pool. Perhaps the greatest aspect to the hotel is the “pay as you wish” system that lets guests pay exactly what they think the trip was worth.
