If you're looking to take a step back from the cluster of high-rise apartment complexes and the frenetic pace of modern city living, the rentable 'Modern Houseboat' in Berlin offers visitors a quick getaway. Situated on the Lake Rummelsburg, the boat's owner, Chris, has made it available for rent for anyone looking to take in the German capital and the glamorous city lights from a uniquely different angle.

The 645-square-foot rectangular, boat-towed house has a completely open space interior, with fully visible glass on the long sides of the house giving unrivaled views close to the calm, soothing water. The house has one double bedroom and an additional bed in the living area. And for anyone wondering how temporary inhabitants can get food without having to fish their dinner, the owner, Chris, says, "There is a supermarket a short walk away for the basics and a nice and stylish restaurant less than a 5 minute walk away."
