Baumraum® is an innovative company based in Germany which crafts something rather brilliant: tree house hotels! The architect refers to these as “tree rooms” on their website. The name “Baumraum” by the way most closely translates to “tree space.” There are quite a few “tree rooms” where you can already stay, so I will share a few of them with you in this post.

Hotel Elbinselhof Krautsand
This hotel has three tree houses in all where guests can stay. The hotel is already open for business.
I can’t tell from these shots whether the houses are literally supported in part by the trees, but lifted high up on stilts among the boughs like this, they certainly qualify as tree houses.
Imagine how relaxing it would be to lounge around on the high deck enjoying the views!
This looks like a lovely spot to lay one’s head down for the night.
The interior is spacious, beautifully designed, and has all the comforts of home.
There is also a communal structure which I assume to be a kind of meeting area or clubhouse.
Baumhaus Lodge Schrems
This next project is located on the edge of Schrems, Österreich. The location is conveniently close to the city, but surrounded by natural beauty. The layout of the resort as well as the structures of the individual lodgings are built to make the best possible use of this landscape and to complement its beauty.
The tree houses have the same modern, minimalist design influences which you observed at the previous resort.
Some elements of the resort are still under construction.
The interior layout showcased here is very different from what you saw in the previous hotel. The space has been arranged to achieve an entirely different effect, but it is one which is no less amazing.
Openness, lots of light, and views of the treetops abound.
The First Tree House
This hotel is located in Bad Zwischenahn, Lower Saxony, which is in northern Germany.
What I like about these units is how much they look like typical tiny houses from the outside—just raised up off the ground a ways! It’s a simple twist on a ubiquitous idea.
The forested landscape on which they are located is nothing short of breathtaking, and large windows take advantage of that fact.
This looks like the most amazing, magical spot ever to enjoy a meal or a snack! It’s also cool how you can see straight through the tree house to the other side. Those are some incredible views!
Simple elegance is the theme throughout the interior, as with the other Baumraum hotels!
Hotel Extension Mendoza
While the shapes of the “tree rooms” in the previous hotel are fairly traditional, perhaps the most unusual hotel designed by Baumraum is the Hotel Extension Mendoza.
This surreal hotel is located near Mendoza, Argentina.
The rooms are raised up like this so that occupants can enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Andes.
Here you can get a feel for what those views are like.
The interior feels contemporary and luxurious.
I hope that you enjoyed these cool “tree room” hotels. Architects like Baumraum are taking tiny design to new levels around the world. Learn more at their official site!
