The manager hands you a key and directs you to the front corner with a window so large it sweeps almost from floor to ceiling and welcoming you below the window is a sitting area.
Sitting within the same lot is this antique camper, silver metallic in color with red accents. The manager smiles and says, ‘you get the Heartbreaker.’
The pride and joy of her collection, the Heartbreaker was acquired from a backyard with a whopper of a story.
Originally from Dresden, this camper was created in 1959 by Karosseribau Nagetusch and would have come from the factory with elegant wooden panels inside.
Renovations proved difficult as the camper was in a rotten condition and the sanding took the layers down to almost nothing.
It was at that point they decided to stop trying to restore it and embrace the nostalgia of the past.
Book your own stay in the nostalgic Heartbreaker camper to enjoy some camping in Berlin.
