A company in the Netherlands has opened a new hotel in a large harbour crane in Amsterdam.
Located on the NDSM Wharf, which was previously a shipyard for the construction and restoration of large ships between 1984 and 1979, the Faralda NDSM hotel has completely renovated the 50 metre, free-slewing crane to incorporate three lavishly furnished hotel suites. It also features a TV and music broadcasting studio and a hot tub on the top of the crane offering a view of the rive IJ and the city of Amsterdam.
The cost for any crane fanatic to stay for the night is €435 and for an extra €85 you can bungee jump from the top!
Amazingly this isn’t the first harbour crane in the Netherlands to be converted, as there is one in the harbour town of Harlingen, in Friesland.
