I'm looking for an animated movie I watched between 2000 and 2010 containing a moving house and black ghostlike shadows that are bad I think, the movie is very weird, it has influenced my childhood a lot but I cant remember much about it, I don't even know the main character anymore. Main memory is a floating/flying giant house and some kind of an entrance into another world.

The movie is in a really weird style, animated and cartoon like (maybe a child movie but really weird for a child) and the main thing I remember is that there is some kind of a house that is maybe a mashine or something and it can fly. Some kind of portal is a part of it I think and there is some kind of black dark shadows that come through walls. I know this information is EXTREMELY vague but I really need to know this movie, it would mean so much to me.
Thank you!
I think I watched it in german, that might help.
