The Urban Treehouse

In the Urban Treehouses you are surrounded by nature and a little closer to the sky, but not far from the urban life of the city of Berlin. The two unusual dwellings are located in a 650 sqm garden in a residential area on the edge of the Grunewald forest. Their shape resembles a tree: The wide trunk – paneled with wood – supplies the house with the necessary power and bears the tree crown, a 28 square meter lodge in solid wood. As a reference to the urban environment it features a sculptural metal facade.

At a height of four meters you will find everything you need: a combined bed and living room with a small kitchen, a bathroom and a roofed terrace. At eye level with the tree tops you can watch birds and squirrels and look through the dense greenery in the Berlin sky. The lakes Krumme Lanke and Schlachtensee are close by, but the bakery, restaurants or a beer garden are within walking distance as well.

But the privacy this house lets you enjoy doesn’t mean you’re cut off from civilization: you can reach Berlin’s city centre in 30-40 minutes with the S-Bahn (overground city rail) or tram, or the Ku’damm and the Messe exhibition centre in 15 minutes by car.

As friends of HOLIDAYARCHITECTURE, we would like to offer you exclusive access to the Urban Treehouses in Berlin.

What to do

In the trunk of one tree house there is a sauna with outdoor shower. The tree houses are located in an urban environment that borders directly on nature. You are very quickly in the center of Berlin with its cultural offerings, but also right in the nature (300 meters behind the house is the bathing lake Krumme Lanke, directly adjacent to the Schlachtensee).

This house is great for

Great for a break alone or as a couple.

Die Baumhäuser sind ein Traum!
Und das, obwohl wir sie in der blätterlosen Zeit, nämlich mitten im Dezember bewohnt haben.
Zuerst eines zu zweit, dann beide zu dritt bzw. zu viert, herrlich!
Beide Häuser sind natürlich klein, aber bestens ausgestattet, mit allem, was man braucht und urgemütlich. Morgens, wenn man aufwacht, schaut man in Baumkronen und auf knorrige Stämme.
Die Hausbesitzer sind fürsorglich und sehr freundlich-familiär, die Nachbarschaft ist hübsch und ruhig, das grüne Umfeld ist wald- und seenreich, die Hauptstadt mit allen kulturellen Highlights ist nah, was will man mehr?
Und nicht zu vergessen: Zur ultimativen Entspannung gibt es im Baumhaus-Stamm eine Saune!
Wir möchten unbedingt einmal im Sommer wieder kommen, um dieses herrliche Plätzchen in sattem Grün zu erleben und um in den fußläufig nahen See zu springen.
