    Xeni are there any photos of the interior?  Curious if its just an upside down outside of if they furnished it upside down as well.

      I would stand back if I were you, those [punchline-inducing-nationality] architects installed the firework launchers upside-down too.

    Me, I have no qualms about saying it (and borrowing a Fark meme): “It’s appropriate that it was built in Austria, as it’s below the equator.”

    Yes, the furniture is all upside down too.  Decent photos here:–includes-garage-car-parked-ceiling.html

    Apparently, they’re not that rare:

    Are upside down houses a thing in German speaking countries now? I saw one in my friend’s town last time I was there:

    There’s one in Poland as well, in the tiny village of Szymbark, as well as in Germany in Trassenheide and Usedom . Seems there are quite a few. A few in Florida, one in Sunrise Village , two others in WonderWorks Amusement Parks in Orlando and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in Japan which is a restaurant in Nagano, another one in St. Petersburg, Russia. One in Turkey in Antalya and an interesting one in Vienna, called House Attack. And not to forget the “House of Katmandu” in Spain! It is indeed a strange world!

    The crown moulding would be strangely easy to install.

    “Becomes” tourist attraction? That sounds like someone built an upside-down house for some other reason and it just so happened to attract tourists, while the text below the picture (a caption also supplied by Reuters?) clearly states that the house was built in order to attract tourists.

    I got a free flight to Vienna once, to deliver an urgent bill of lading for an expensive  shipment sitting waiting for customs clearance. 
    The original documents had been sent to Sydney – presumably by an American.  Is it something in the water?
