Das Park Hotel – Linz, Austria

 When we travel, we often want to stay in the best hotels money can buy, but really, what is the fun in that? Isn’t it more of an adventure to stay in a unique place that adds more charm than stars? Sure you can stay in a five-star hotel, but have you ever slept in a wine barrel, a jail, or magic mountain? Here are just some of the weird hotels found all across the globe.

The Das Park Hotel (pictured above) gives you a unique experience for sure. You wouldn’t sleep in a sewer, but would sleep in a pipe that was once in the sewer? If you would, then this unique Linz, Austria hotel offers you the chance to sleep in re-designed and standardized sewer pipes. With a double bed, it is a cozy stay within a pipe. The hotel complex nearby offers you food, toilets and more. Open between May and October, this is truly a unique place to stay, as long as you are not too claustrophobic…

All of us have had too much to drink and ended up sleeping off the booze, but how many of us have actually slept in something that once contained booze? This 21-room hotel is made out of a series of 14,500 liter wine casks that have been converted into hotel rooms. The epitome of recycling, these rooms are actually quite nice and cozy and come at a bargain of only $150 per night. Each room contains two beds, a sitting room and a bathroom.
