Lighthouse Hotel

If you are interested in lighthouses and you would like to spend a couple of nights in such a fantastic building, go to Usedom. There is a seventy-year old amazing lighthouse here which offers a unique experience to its guests. Usedom is just a two hours drive north of the German capital city. I think it’s absolutely worth making the way. The lighthouse serves as “one hotel room” extended on three levels. You can enjoy the unique experience and in addition, relax in the wooden Jacuzzi. It costs 250 Euros a night per two persons. (February 2013)

Prison Hotel

If you would like to have part of a real strange experience, spend a night in a former prison! Yes, you’ve read it well…a prison. Hotel Alcatraz can be found in Southwest Germany, in Kaiserslautern. It actually offers prison cell rooms furnished very simply, just like a prison cell. The price of a double room starts at 69 Euros.
