Karimu Rooms/Leisure

The Karimu invites you to rest, discover, talk, activities, work and linger. Our forecourt terrace with plenty of seating, the courtyards or rooms and areas within the conference centre meet this invitation. In the following, we will introduce you to a few possibilities.

Raum Der Stille Karimu

Chapel

A place of retreat that invites us to meet up with God.

Window stripes slanting upwards culminate in a pyramid of glass that bursts through the roof, offering an unhampered view into the higher realms. This unique architecture reminds us that man was „created in the image of and towards God“ and is, ultimately, unable to live without looking up towards Him.
This room is equipped with underfloor heating.

Self-Service Café

Take some time out to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the homey and relaxed atmosphere of our Cafeteria. Situated close to the Reception area, the Cafeteria is barrier-free and easily accessible, offering you space to relax on your own or in pleasant company.

A big glass front lightens up the room, and an adjacent terrace invites you to enjoy some coffee out in the sun.
