From the very first beginning it was the idea of the artist Andreas Strauss to create a network of these unusual accommodation options. The first dasparkhotel was built in Austria in 2005. In May 2022, »dasparkhotel_inside-outsite« was opened at Hof Emscher-Auen in Castrop-Rauxel as part of the artistic revision and expansion of the Emscherkunstweg. It is the second location of »dasparkhotel« on the Emscher. There has been a branch in Bottrop’s BernePark since 2010.
LINGER IN NATURE
With the overnight accommodations at Hof Emscher-Auen in Castrop-Rauxel and in the BernePark in Bottrop, the Emscherkunstweg can be experienced on its almost 100 kilometers of cycle paths in the form of a tour lasting several days. The concrete sleeping cabins can be opened and closed individually using an electronic code locking system. They offer space for one to two people and are opened in the warm season between May and October.
