King of the road

For the ultimate drive-time experience, you need never leave your hotel room again. Welcome to the V8 Hotel in Germany, where the boundaries between life on the road and life between the sheets are blurred as never before


F035_rtFor the motor-enthusiast on business in Germany, there’s one pitstop, albeit a slightly eccentric one, that’s well worth a visit for the ultimate in auto-emersion. With much charm, a dash of that quintessential 1920s vibe and an exclusive outlook into the oldtimer event hall of the Meilenwerk, the V8 Hotel guarantees visitors an exciting stay that will satisfy even the most avid of auto-aficionado. The former airport hotel was in the ‘Bauhaus’ style of architecture and is now a listed building, with all hotel rooms in the building being decorated faithfully to the style of the period. Car enthusiasts will lose themselves in the Trading Hall, which is full of classic cars and collectors material.

Car specialists, technical enthusiasts, and those who appreciate the aesthetics and nostalgia of the motor car can find all they are looking for under one roof. The Meilenwerk offers the car enthusiast a broad spectrum of experiences in technology and the fascinating world of mobility. Collectors may also park their car one of the ‘glass boxes’ and have it serviced by professional restorers and car-care experts.

Spend a night in one of the gloriously themed rooms, from under the stars at a drive-in cinema to a gas station in a converted VW Beetle bed. Step up on to the winners’ podium in the racing room or enjoy a rain-water shower in the car wash room – the V8 camping room even provides the feeling of sitting in the open countryside.
