Dasparkhotel is a concept hotel by Andreas Strauss in which guests stay in converted drain pipe sections that are placed in a city park. There are currently two hotels, one near Essen, Germany, and another in Ottensheim, Austria. Dasparkhotel accepts online reservations from May to October and is sliding scale.
The external simplicity surrounds an unexpectedly comfortable interior – full headroom, double bed, storage, light, power, woolly blanket and light cotton sleeping bag. All other hotelery devices (Toilets, showers, minibar, cafe, etc) are supplied by the surrounding public space.
