If you’ve ever wanted to spend a night inside a dumpster – but without the accompanying smell – then Culture Campsite may be of interest. Situated on a former parking lot in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, it features an eclectic mix of micro-shelters made from recycled materials and objects including farm equipment, feed silos, and more.

Perhaps better suited to people in the mood for something off-the-wall, rather those hoping for a luxurious glamping experience, Culture Campsite is envisioned as a sustainable retreat and comprises different types of shelters that would be a nightmare for claustrophobes. They also don’t contain a toilet or running water.

The campsite recently closed following the end of its second season (it’s not open through winter) and constantly has new shelters added and old ones taken away. In addition to the shelters, there’s a communal kitchen and a dining area in a geodesic dome, plus shared bathrooms.

Activities on offer include yoga classes, tours through the area, and a tiny house design course. It’s scheduled to open again in May 2021 and prices start at €74.23 (roughly US$90), plus taxes and cleaning costs, for two people, per shelter, per night.
