You could go camping in these teardrop-shaped tents that are hanging from trees in Belgium

Kristof VranckenAbout an hour outside of Brussels, Belgium, are tear-shaped sculptures meant for camping.
  • Belgians are heading to the countryside for vacation this year, and many are discovering the half-tent, half-tree house structures in a forest in Borgloon, Belgium.
  • A set of teardrop-shaped tents were built as an art installation in Borgloon in 2011, and they are now available for campers to rent.
  • Each tent is equipped with a bed, a bench, storage, windows, and, of course, a ladder to help guests climb in and out of the structure.
  • The Dutch designer, Dré Wapenaar, has been creating teardrop-shaped tents for decades. Visitors can find similar tents hanging from a sculpture park in Missouri and in a campsite in the Netherlands.
  • A night in the tent costs about $US82 in the Borgloon forest, and interested campers can book one through the town’s tourism website.
