3) Der Wilhelmshof

Der Wilhelmshof is an eco-friendly art hotel. Here you will not just find works of art in your room, the rooms are actually art, and were designed by artists like Ty Waltinger and Andreas Reimann. Even the garage was designed by artists. But this house is not a museum, you can use it. Enjoy!

Once upon a time the Daniel was an ordinary hotel near the city’s central station, but then they rebranded themselves, and since then they are the hottest place in time. A boat by the artist Erwin Wurm graces their roof, telling you everything you need to know about this hotel. Sleep in room 777, a silver retro trailer parked in front of the hotel.
