This Hotel Invites Guests to Spend the Night in a Giant Wine Barrel
Oenophiles the world over will be happy to know that they can now book a wine barrel for the night. In the small village of Sasbachwalden in Germany, people are invited to not only come to taste the region’s wine, but to sleep in the giant barrels they were once made in.
At Schlafen im Weinfass, guests can choose from five different barrels to spend an evening in. Each one comes with everything you need, including a comfortable bed, a fully functional bathroom, and a small rock garden patio to greet you at the door. And as Inhabitat noted, the barrels are also heated, so you can stay over any time of year.
And while the barrels are an attraction themselves, the views aren't bad either: Inside, guests can look out from the bed to the enormous picture window that perfectly frames the vineyard below.
And if this sounds enticing, there are even more options around the world for wine barrel accommodations.
Travelers can spend an evening in a barrel in Walla Walla, Washington, on a private residence just up the road from wine country.
They can cozy up in another barrel in at the Dutch Hotel De Vrouwe van Stavoren in Stavoren, a town in the northern Netherlands.
