The Travel Bugs and geocoins that make it to this TB hotel in Germany are in for a treat. The cache — which you’ll only be able to find after solving the puzzle on the cache page — is probably as close to actually hotel-sized as a geocache can get.

Muggles who catch a glimpse of the adorable little geo-house will assume it’s meant for kids. Little do they know, most of the house’s visitors are fully-grown!

The entrance to the house is clearly marked as geocaching territory.

Inside the hotel, a reception area contains bins for organizing trackables by their destination.

For a while, the cache owner was mailing trackables that landed in the “America” bin to a contact in the United States. Although that service has been interrupted (according to the cache page), it will hopefully continue again in the future.

When visiting this cache, take a seat at the window, gaze out at the garden and street below, and contemplate the words you’re about to write in the logbook…

…then open the window panes and smile out at the camera-person outside!

The TB hotel is located on private property, with the permission of the property owner (who also helped to build and paint the house, by the way). It’s a fine example of a big cache with lots of room for oversize trackables. The 445 favorite points it’s garnered in just three years are well-deserved.

It’s not too late to enter your trackable into the HQ Duck Dash race this summer! If you do, your TB might end up at this or one of many other amazing travel bug hotels around the world. Enter the Race.
