This Luxury Apartment Used to Be an Air Traffic Control Tower. And You Can Stay There for Free

Waking up in time for your flight the next morning won’t be a problem here.

The Stockholm Arlanda Airport transformed its original air-traffic control tower into a luxurious apartment — and now, people can enter a competition to spend the night in it with family and friends.

The renovated, 262-foot tower includes panoramic views of the airport runway, floor-to-ceiling windows and a gray color scheme with minimalistic designs. The apartment can accommodate four people, and it was designed by Swedish artist Cilla Ramnek.

The nearly 380-square-foot apartment, which has a view of the runway, also includes a kitchen and a bathroom. The airport is one of two in Sweden’s capital.

Stockholm Arlanda partnered with HomeAway, a vacation rental company, for the promotion, which includes a 24-hour stay in the tower, a roundtrip flight and three nights worth of HomeAway accommodations in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Osolo or Helsinki.

HomeAway is the same company that built an apartment in the Eiffel Tower last year.
