As you explore the countryside of Luxembourg in search of castles and ruins, you might make it to Useldange. Useldange, a small town, is home to the towering castle ruins of Castle Useldange. However, this town is also home to one of the most unforgettable stays in Luxembourg – The Mushroom Hotel Luxembourg.
While most people refer to this hotel as “The Mushroom Hotel,” it’s called Péitche Lauer Hotel and EcoLodges.
Having opened in May 2019, the Péitche Lauer Hotel and EcoLodges in Useldange is the first luxury hotel in Useldange.
Its twelve rooms are in three different types of buildings. Old tanneries are in one of the buildings. Another is a newly built “pavilion” with references to the region and two large terraces. Then there are three so-called MushRooms in the third variant.
It was essential when building the Péitche Lauer to consider sustainability. Wood pellet heating and renewable energies generate the hotel’s energy.
Besides serving sustainable, regional, and seasonal food, the Péitche Lauer’s brasserie serves traditional Luxembourgish dishes like Bouchée à la Reine and Wäinzoossiss.
A holder of the EU Ecolabel and the Luxembourgish Bed & Bike label, EcoLodges Péitche Lauer also stores motorcycles. All you must do is cross the street to visit Useldange Castle or get information from the tourist office. Use the nearby cycle paths and hiking trails to explore the surrounding area.

About the MushRooms
Three tiny houses stand like giant mushrooms on the Attert stream’s edge. Accessible by a footbridge-like path. A large white cap tops each. The small houses are a bit reminiscent of The Hobbit’s Shire.
The MushRooms are constructed out of wood from the local beech woods, which are typical for this region. The modern and comfortable furniture inside these accommodations and the cute balconies round off a unique and relaxing overnight stay.
In 2019, the three MushRooms were awarded the Luxembourgish Prize for Rural Tourism.
The perfect place to sleep for two people if you are looking for cozy, original, and romantic accommodation.
Inside The MushRooms
The MushRooms are just 62 square feet in size. They are not very big, but they are beyond unique. If you stay here, it’s all about reducing, slowing down, and detoxing from technology. There is no TV or Wi-Fi in MushRooms, but everything else you might need for a pleasant stay is there.
Each MushRooms feature a private bathroom, a living room with two modern upholstered armchairs, a small table, a kettle, and a small balcony with two chairs and a stream view.
You sleep on the floor above in a double box spring bed. A steep staircase leads up to the sleeping area with a double bed.
A built-in mini bathroom has a toilet, washbasin, and shower.
Depending on the weather, breakfast is served in the hotel or on the terrace by the stream in the morning.
