Modern Houseboat in Berlin offers unusually adventurous getaway

Developed by Berlin-based brothers Oliver Laugsch and Chris Laugsch from WelcomeBeyond, the Modern Houseboat is a perfect holiday rental home in Berlin, Germany. It is a 645-square-feet floating shelter that includes open kitchen, large living room, shower room and main bedroom with a double bed, facing Lake Rummelsburg- a small bay in the river Spree.

Its distinctive architecture and design offer you an adventurous stay on water, along with serene landscape views. The houseboat can easily accommodate two adults and two children, making it a perfect getaway with family. Front section of the houseboat contains windows and opens to the bay, giving you full view of the Berlin’s famous TV tower and ducks enjoying within the lake.

Although the houseboat provides you pleasant and comfortable getaway, but not leaves you in complete seclusion because the city center is just 15 minutes away from main houseboat. The Modern Houseboat boasts custom-made minimalist interior that add spaciousness and simplicity to architectonics. Living room incorporates a retractable double bed and a low rise sofa, so you can have glimpse of outside views while lying down in comfort of your sheets.

The floating home is even installed with air conditioner and fireplace to provide you utmost comfort in both hot and cold climatic conditions. On this amazing houseboat, you’ll also get two hand-crafted timeless ‘Bella Ciao’ bicycles for exploring the bay area anytime on adventurous two-wheeler.

Another good thing about this houseboat is that you can even self-drive it and take your family to any desired location, provided you’ve got an appropriate driver license and documents for the ride. Sounds reckless and fun, right? Just for $1597 per week, you can rent this stunning shelter to escape your hectic schedule, while exploring the tranquility and beauty of Berlin.
