Located in the trendy Neukölln area of Berlin, Hüttenpalast is a hotel for people who enjoy camping. Opened last year by locals Silke Lorenzen and Sarah Vollmer, this unusual hotel is located inside the big open space of a 1910 vacuum cleaner factory and features neat rooms each of which are housed inside reworked caravans and wooden huts. Hüttenpalast is hidden behind a cafe — also part of the hotel.

Events organizer Silke Lorenzen and designer Sarah Vollmer wanted to create a fun, innovative and flexible accommodation space in their area of Neukölln. Aiming to preserve the inner beauty and vastness of the building, they decided to build a few shelters and re-appropriate some caravans — bought on Ebay. There is also a two-floor structure containing a double room on the top and another inside, made from original wooden paneling found on site.

With names such as “Heartbreaker” or “The Little Sister,” each room has been designed by a different artist and have its own unique style. Whether you are looking for a romantic atmosphere or a Scandinavian space for rest, Hüttenpalast has it all. Vintage camping furniture and mixed tables and chairs bought at the city’s Flohmärkte -— Flea Markets — made common areas to have breakfast, meet other travelers or just relax with the Berlin Travel Guide.
