The way we choose to travel and particularly where we plan on staying can be a very personal choice, with a number of factors that influence our decision making. Before I ever decide on where to go, I tend to set myself a very clear set of “guidelines” to help find the right place. For instance, I will give myself a budget for accommodation costs, with a slightly higher budget just incase something exceptional pops up and seems like a really great experience. If I do decide that its a good idea to spend a little more on my accommodation, there has to be a real practical/emotional reason as to why it would benefit myself – otherwise I’m paying a premium, which I often think can be the wrong reason to choose a place to “rest my sleepy head”. Thats not to say I don’t like a treat… but I usually like to justifiable as to why I should pay more. Does that make sense?

My friends and I have decided to go on a city-break to Berlin in the coming months. Flights are booked and 12 of us are going! I’m so excited to be visiting! I have never visited Berlin, it always seems like such a cool city to explore… anyway, it’s got to the point where we have decided to look at accommodation – I’ve been doing hours of research and I kinda want to go back to our group of friends and say… “hey, look at awesomely brilliant, reasonably priced, affordable, quirky, fashionable and unique accommodation that I stumbled across”, but the reality is that there is often a lot more work in finding something that truly stands out and is perfect for a group of friends with a multitude of different ideas of what and where we should stay.

Somehow, while undertaking my research I became side-tracked… it may have been one of my little “give my eyes a rest from the Mac” break, which usually translates to… “Go grab a chocolate biscuit from my treat jar while making a cup of tea to down the biscuits with”. Eventually, on my return to looking for some awesome accommodation, I came across the idea of spending a vacation within a tree-house… and not just any old tree house filled with creepy crawlies – but beautifully constructed and plush tree houses that are fit for a King, Queen, or even lil ol’ me!

10 Gloriously Quirky Tree Houses To Visit This Year!

I didn’t find any tree-houses in Berlin, but hopefully (and selfishly on my part 😉 ), this list will make you join in with me on my new found obsession with amazing and quirky tree-houses!


1.) Germany: Görlitz Tree house at the Baumhaus Hotel

Situated up above Kulturinsel Einsiedel are nine picturesque tree houses that will pick anybody’s curiosity! All the treehouse are connected by a web of bespoke tree-top paths, which all meet in one suspended concourse where picnics, lounging and celebrations can be held. each tree-house has a little snug area where you can “perch” and relax, along with a beautifully equipped sleeping alcove. They even have larger tree-houses that can house up to 6 people. Perfect for a group of friends and a great treat for anyone!
