These days, you probably see all sorts of dream travel destinations every time you open up TikTok, and the latest viral sensation is no exception. TikTok user @anastasiajant recently shared a stunning video of a complete treehouse village, and when you see the video, you’ll understand why it’s racked up nearly 7.5 million views on the app alone.

The user later shared a secondary video giving a closer look at these homes, which are constructed on top of bases made to look like tree trunks. Some sleuthy TikTokers determined that the charming treehouse village is a brand new “holiday paradise” located in Seelbach, Germany, offering 10 elevated treehouses made of local wood — and yes, guests can book a trip to this majestic destination nestled in the Black Forest.

According to the website for Schwarzwälder Hof, site owner Robert Schwörer created the unique campground, with local German wood workers constructing 10 treehouses around an elevated center observation tower, though all of the structures offer unique views of the surrounding hills and valleys.

Each two-story treehouse includes two bedrooms, one bathroom, three balconies, a dishwasher-equipped kitchen, and a seating area with a couch and TV. Constructed of silver fir, decorative elements inside the houses were made of cherry wood, including the dining table and chairs, wardrobe, beds, window sills, and part of the interior spiral staircases. Each home includes two parking spaces, a private terrace, internet access, and a charging station for electric cars. The owners also aimed to make the site eco-friendly, using smart equipment that ensures it is 80 percent self-sufficient in terms of energy. 

Naturally, the village is drumming up tons of interest on Reddit and Instagram, too. And while many commenters had concerns over the cutting down of trees to build the houses on top, a Reddit commenter noted that each base was designed to simply look like a tree, which suggests no actual trees were harmed in the construction of these homes. It’s certainly not your average campsite, making for a truly bucket list Black Forest travel destination.
