Sleeping Pods Made to Shelter the Homeless Are Placed in This German City

This is one of the coolest ideas ever!

Credit: Ulmer Nest

The German city, Ulm, has graciously added pods called Ulmer Nests in parks and surrounding areas. Crafted from steel and wood, these pods are designed for anyone out in the cold who needs a warm night’s rest. So far there are two pods that were installed on January 8th, just in time for the super chilly weather. 

Check out this video to get a look inside the pods. The video is in German, but don’t worry there is a subtitles option available!

Wow, this is amazing! The pods do not have any cameras installed in them, but are sensors so it is obvious when they are occupied. When they are in use, the people at Ulmer Nest and members of the Caritas Ulm-Alb-Donau charity association are alerted so they can offer the occupant help and check on the pod, repairing any issue if necessary. 

The pods have solar panels and their beds have been created with thermal insulation. These warm pods can fit up to two people and will help to provide a comfortable night’s rest to those who need it.
