Woodpecker Hotel - Hotell Hackspett, The Hotel In The Trees

To get to your room you will need to climb 13 meters up a rope ladder. It is located high in the boughs of a magnificent Oak tree which is 130 years old. From your private balcony, you will command spectacular views of a public park and Lake Mälaren. Room service is delivered via a pulley system or you can decide to be winched up and down from your room.

Artist Mikael Genberg designed the hotel to look like a traditional Swedish Red Cottage placed incongruously in a treetop rather like it has been deposited there by a fairy-tale tornado. It was built in 1998 and is suspended from very strong wires so no nails damage the tree. The accommodation is comfortable and rustic with a dry toilet. As there is no heating at the moment you can only stay there in the summer season.
