Atlas Obscura Propeller Island City Lodge

Berlin is a city known for the pervasiveness of art and for its tendency toward outlandish character. Propeller Island City Lodge does not disappoint that legacy.

Propeller Island is the pseudonym used by the German artist Lars Stroschen whose usual oeuvre consists of audio-visual creations. This particular construct of his takes D.I.Y to the extreme. This hotel is hand-made down to the last detail; original, uncopied and unique.
