Hotel Charles Lindbergh
Live your childhood dreams of flying and sleep in an aeronaut's cabin, in a unique, immersive fantasy world of historic aviation and adventure, set within one of Europe's best-loved theme parks.
Named after the famed American aviator and inventor (who in 1927 completed the first non-stop flight from New York City to Paris), the Hotel Charles Lindbergh is a unique setting, in which your dreams of flight are made gloriously real!
The aviation-themed hotel soars above the Steampunk city of Rookburgh... an immersive, detail-rich fantasy-world set within Phantasialand, a renowned German theme park.
Jets of white steam rise up from Rookburgh's streets, enchantingly lined with vintage-style buildings, vehicles, and captivating billboards from aviation's glory days. Meanwhile, machinery pommels in the distance, and a revolutionary flying machine thunders its way past!
Your unique journey begins just as soon as you've entered the hotel and made your way along its chequered corridor, strewn with classic suitcases, towards the themed check-in desks at reception.
Here, you will be fully inducted into the exclusive Explorers' Society!
What does membership entail, exactly? Well, along with sleeping in an authentically-styled vintage aeronaut's cabin, you'll enjoy guest-only access to the hotel's bar and restaurant...
...not to mention exclusive check-in, by a private boarding gate, to F.L.Y. - the revolutionary flying machine you watched in open-mouthed wonder, as it zoomed its way over and under the streets of Rookburgh, passing right through the hotel itself.
The first of its kind in the world, F.L.Y. is an incredible flying launch coaster whose unique engineering mimics the carefree sense of flight. Securely fastened into your seat, you'll swivel effortlessly into a prone position (you can even release your arms if you dare) as you swish through the skies.
What to do when you're back on the ground? Savour a three-course evening meal in the hotel's Restaurant Uhrwerk - try the home-made shovel of irresistibly flavoured French fries - then relax for the rest of the evening in Bar 1919.
Here, you can sample 15 kinds of craft beer (order a tasting platter if you're not sure which to opt for!) or even treat yourselves to a candy-festooned cocktail-for-two, before enjoying a round of darts or pool.
Your private, domed aeronaut's cabin will be waiting when the day is finally done. Expertly crafted from warm wood, gleaming brass, and soft leather, there are two comfy single beds to curl up in (family cabins are also available), and you'll have a private bathroom to freshen up in.
The immersive attention to detail doesn't stop here. There are plenty of joyous accessories to make you feel as though you're actually on board a flying machine... such as flight goggles and a fun hatch-style wardrobe! There's plenty of storage, and a TV if you really need it, too.
After a restful night's sleep, all that's left to do is head back to Restaurant Uhrwerk for a mouth-watering buffet breakfast, then explore the rest of Phantasialand's distinctive themed areas and award-winning attractions.
Whole new worlds of discovery await!
