PROPELLER ISLAND – Berlin, Germany
Searching for a peculiar and out of this world place? A lodge located in Berlin, Germany could just be an answer. It surely live up to its name which is known as Propeller Island.
The name Propeller Island is a pseudonym used by Lars Stroschen, who is a known German artist to define and depict his audio-visual creations, unlimited diversity, unique and one and only works. His guiding principle as he create this masterpiece was “Repeating nothing and copying nothing”
This city lodge is located in the heart of Berlin, which surely catches the heart of the people as well with its peculiar and habitable work of art.
It never fails to attract everyone that is why it is being frequented by personalities from around the globe, it also serves as a much-desired shooting site for photo sessions and etc.
as said on their website:
“no, this is not one of those trendy designer hotels…it is more like a private planet which has evolved in unique synchronicity with the tastes of its inventor. here, nothing has been bought, every single construction is a singular novelty, everything is authentic and everything has its own special function – nothing is fake, nothing is mere decoration. no plastic and no papier-mâché.
there is not just colourfulness behind these walls, but pure composition in vivid colours. the CITY LODGE is intensive but subtle, ironic but coy, an all-round work of art, including its resident sound-sculptures.
whoever utilises the simple mechanical constructions here, really sees and knows what he/she is doing – a winking and welcoming alternative in a world of silicium cells. characteristically, this contrast programme to virtual and cyber spheres was conceived by someone who otherwise does everything by computer…
whoever desires freedom can find perennial inspiration here. truly. the unfolding mental universe of our guests is the joy of the creator.”
Maybe that is why this will stick or will be a highlight of your stay or trip in Berlin.

Calling all the car lovers out there! This hotel will surely rev your engine!
As you arrive at V8 Hotel, you will be immediately met with legendary vintage cars right in the lobby. What more could lure you in is the car museum with cherry red vintage Porsche, old timer Mercedes Benz, and even a few high end Alfa Romeo. There are car sales dealers located right in the museum and several of the shiny cars are for sale.
Being near to the industrial hub of Stuttgart meant that Boblingen Airport was an obvious target for Allied bombers and was left in ruins by the end of the war. But the building was eventually rebuilt and reopened as the V8 hotel opened in 2009.
The V8 Hotel occupies only half of the terminal building, the other half is shared by the Meilenwerk, an auto museum that offers car enthusiast a rare look at a fascinating collection of classic, vintage and collector cars, and everything else related automobiles.
Hotel employee Heike Petzold said: ‘Everybody wants to stay here when they come to the Meilenwerk.
Each room has his own personal touch, its unique character and is dedicated to themes related to the automobile.
