Both the New York Times and CNN have reported the rising popularity of hotels in Germany and other parts of Europe that offer a night's sleep on a bed of hay. While these heuhotels do have a certain ick-factor, the rustic simplicity of sleeping in a barn does have its appeal and who can say no to a good, old fashioned, roll in the hay?

Okay, plenty of people probably can. It's a no frills kind of accommodation, where guests usually need to bring their own bedding and towels and sleep in close vicinity to each other (and possibly a few animals). But it is a step up from camping, it's budget and eco-friendly, and we're betting the milk in your morning coffee will be pretty darn fresh. A list of German heuhotels ca be found at www.heuhotels.de.
