Sleep In A Teardrop-Shaped Tent In Belgium

Looking to plan a one-of-a-kind camping trip? Look no further. In Belgium, you can rent a teardrop shaped tent originally created as an art installation.

Travel and Leisure ~ ” For those who are not fans of sleeping on the cold, hard ground, sleeping in a treehouse can be an excellent alternative. And for many Belgians, this small camping ground, called Tranendreef, is the perfect way to spend a summer night.

In Borgloon, located in Limburg, Belgium, campers can spend a night in these four uniquely shaped tents that are suspended from trees, Reuters India reported. The tents resemble a teardrop and actually were made as an art installation. But, since they were installed, they’ve evolved into becoming a tourist attraction since 2011.

Artist Dré Wapenaar originally created the tents in the 1990s as part of the Pit Landscape art festival in Belgium, which features work that combines art and nature, according to Metro. The artwork is in support of environmental activists who want to stop tree felling (cutting down trees).

The tents are accessible via a ladder and all contain a mattress for sleeping two people, a bench, small storage areas, and a window to look out into the forest and night sky.” ~ Travel and Leisure
