Just another treehouse hotel or a hotel in an oak tree
"The guest becomes something of an actor in a strange role play," says the creator artist Mikael Genberg.
Hotell Hackspett, which means Woodpecker Hotel, opened in 1998 in an oak tree in Vasa park, in Vasteras, near Stockholm. It is 13 metres above the ground in the largest oak tree in one of the city parks. it is also eco friendly as not one single nail has been used to anchor the hotel to the tree; instead it is suspended from wires that do not damage the tree.
