To share the incredible experience of the self-built boat (and to finance the project), we occasionally rent the boat for overnight stays, as a vacation home, for workshops, and as a film set.

The boat is 5m wide and 11,5m long. It’s fully equipped with anything that might come to your mind: a large dining (or workshop) table, couch, kitchen, bathroom, queen-size bed—and loads of plant and light.

In summer months, the »Arche Opteryx« raft is attached to the house boat. It’s a floating garden and a huge sun deck. There’s an apple tree growing, a vegetable bed, deck chairs and a large bbq.

Workshops, Events & Floating Office

There’s something amazing happening once a group sits down at our large table: the design, the slow rocking – but foremost: the fact to all be in the same boat create a unique, creative atmosphere that levels any hierarchy instantaneously. We experienced it over and over again, for example during artists talks at high level international art fairs: walk-in audience and even the most famous artists & curators were in a mutually enriching conversation withing seconds.

We offer our boat’s super powers for your company event or workshop!

The boat has all office material aboard, such as flip chart, a full magnetic wall, facilitator’s toolkit, printer, wifi, projector & screen. We provide you with coffee, tea, and soft drinks as well as fruits & snacks.

It’s suitable for up to 12 persons.

Rate: 800€/day (9.00-19.00) + VAT
Special offer for mini groups up to 5 persons and without any catering: 650€/day + VAT

Vacation Home & Overnight Stays

The bathroom boasts a walk-in rain-shower with jungle wallpaper. The kitchenette is equipped with a gas stove, sink, and all pots, pans & utensils you might need for a 5 course menu.

The main bed – we call it the captain’s berth – is a large double bed separated by curtains from the main room. The second bed doubles as the couch but it has a real mattress.

There is a huge skylight over the bed for romantic star watching while dozing off and plenty of nice details will make you smile again and again.

The whole boat is yours!

We have a lovely canoe complete with pic-nic basket and everything that you can use free of charge as well as two old city bikes.

The boat has a wood stove as well as automatic gas heating and we’ll leave you plenty of wood for romantic evenings by the fireplace. Even on the coldest winter nights the boat is cosy and warm.

Please note: as it’s a boat and as it’s self-built a lot of things are a little bit different than in an ordinary home. The toilet is a dry compost toilet (seriously requiring men to sit down), for example, and water is filtered lake water. Also, there’s a strict natural cosmetics / shower gel policy to minimize pollution. (Don’t worry, we’ll supply you with some bottled drinking water and all-organic shower gel & shampoo.)

Also, the space needs a bit more care than your ordinary bricks-and-mortar building. We expect guests to respect the space and to take good care. Please leave the boat tidy!

We have two bicycles available for you free of charge and offer an all-organic full fridge service: find the boat stocked with all delicious things you can imagine for long breakfast or feasty dinners. The full fridge isn’t included in your booking but it’s very fairly priced at 12,50€ per person/meal. Please let us know if your interested and what your preferences are (Vegan, Vegetarian, Breakfast, Dinner, etc.)

inclusive all taxes, minimum stay: 2 nights, flexible check-in/check-out
