Attention: Until further notice, this Kabaischen cannot be booked.
The Kabaischen in Schifflange will not be completed until 2023. An alternative accomodation will be made available in the meantime.
Fancy sleeping with the fishes? Admittedly: there are no fish in the former water basin next to the living room of this unusual hiker's hut. But this unusual overnight stay is still one of the highlights of the Minett Trail, and though fish aren't in the bassin,that doesn't make this "Kabaischen" of the Minett Trail any less interesting.
Starting with the fact that you first have to climb down to spend the night. Because the living space of this hiker's hut is located below the surface. On the surface, a ring-shaped red wall already traces the floor plan of the water basin below and doubles as a protection from prying eyes. Guests can already guess from the outside what awaits them inside.
A spiral staircase leads down to the water reservoir. Even the staircase itself is a work of art, because its entrance and exit on the surface is embedded in a triangular figure, which can also be climbed via another staircase and on which there is a viewing platform. The staircase also fulfills a double role as a chimney outlet.
Anyone who dares to go down the spiral staircase will be amazed; below ground, a four meter high room awaits its guests. Ceiling, beams and supports are witnesses of the past. The view is directed towards a large viewing window and the pool of water behind it, through which daylight can also penetrate inside. A large triangular common room with a kitchen allows for an exchange with like-minded people.
Four individual bedrooms, each with two single beds, welcome up to eight visitors, and each room is opaque on its own. Washrooms are located in the rear area of the "Kabaischen".
The eleven "Kabaisercher" of the regional hiking trail "Minett Trail" all represent unique, fresh accommodation options that are unparalleled in the Grand Duchy. The example in Schifflange is absolutely no exception - on the contrary!
The "Waasserbaséng" will not be completed in time for the 2022 season. A replacement with suitable availability is guaranteed. Concept by Studio Jil Bentz + Hendrik Brinkmann + Safran Architecture
