ich bin ein auslander

If you're traveling in Germany and are looking for a unique hotel experience, spend a few nights in the Propeller Island City Lodge in Berlin. The place is a hotel run by artists, and each of the rooms has its own theme... some of them are beautiful, some are whimsical, some are exceedingly impractical, but they are all interesting.

They've got a prison cell (for cubicle dwellers who miss the sensation), a padded room for those who've gone over the edge, and his-and-hers coffins for those who've really passed on. There's an abandoned mineshaft, a fairytale room, and it just wouldn't be Berlin without a 'now is zee time on Sprockets ven vee dance' room.
