Karimu Rooms/Leisure

Karimu Rooms & Leisure


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.

Raum der Stille
Karimu Cafeteria

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.


The lobby has two sofas to sit on and an interesting listening station for languages. If you go around two corners, you can always buy an ice cream in a freezer there.
In the lobby is the lift that leads to the different floors.
