Newest Travel Craze - Sleeping In Beds Of Hay

The travel industry may be suffering during these tough economic times, but hotels in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland have found a way to attract new visitors - let them sleep in beds of freshly raked hay in converted barns. For as little as 8 Euros per night ($11 U.S.),  backpackers, couples, families, and (in the case of one German hotel) groups of up to 60 can bond by eating together around a camp fire and then
rolling around in the hay.

Without the need for new construction, heavy laundry bills or other forms of high energy consumption, hay hotels are also an effective means of low-impact, sustainable tourism.

This isn't a new fad, and it's not about environmentalism either. These types of "hotels" have been around for about 15 years in Europe.That's like someone saying the Ice Hotel is about being green.

Alex beat me to it---save the "Young Frankenstein" comments. BTW--I worked at a Boy Scout camp years ago and we provided straw for large cloth bags to be used as matresses for the campers.
