Upside Down – The Upside Down House aka Haus Kopf Über on Rügen


Combat gravity and have an upside down experience on Germany’s biggest island Rügen.

In the small town of Putbus there is something quite special to be found:

The Kopf Über Haus

which means Upside-Down House in English. And yes it is completely upside down. The roof first, then first floor and ground floor and lastly the cellar which in this case it at the very top of the house.

Not only is the house upside down, but also inclined a bit so your senses are not to be trusted for the first minutes.

Explore rooms like the kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom and more.

The best part is the pictures you take there – so make sure to plan your visit with some friends because selfies will not have the same effect as pictures taken by someone else.

Viktoria Urbanek Travel Blog Chronic Wanderlust

Grüß dich, I'm Viki!

At Chronic Wanderlust, I write about my two great passions: travelling and diving – and have been doing so since 2013.

I usually spend a solid majority of the year travelling to experience extraordinary underwater adventures, taking road trips through countries I don’t know (yet) or exploring my home country of Austria.

As a certified divemaster, passionate underwater & travel photographer, road trip enthusiast and individual traveller, I collect unique moments all over the world.

I don’t believe that severe cases of wanderlust – aka chronic wanderlust – can be cured, only treated. On this blog, I want to show you how this can best be realised.

Curious to get to know me better?
