Probably the Largest Bathroom in the World

Re-Opening: Showerworld at the Hansgrohe Aquademie Shines in New Splendor

Schiltach, April 2022. "You can only feel the excitement of XXL showering pleasure with our showers when you've experienced it for yourself," Felicitas Albring, Head of the Hansgrohe Aquademie, says. Trade customers and end consumers can experience this in the Hansgrohe Showerworld in Schiltach. After extensive renovation, one of the world's largest bathrooms shines in new splendor in the middle of the Black Forest.

The entire shower area is new. On an area of 214 square meters, visitors can try out more than 20 different products from the AXOR and hansgrohe brands. "The brand areas are more clearly separated from each other. There is now more brand noticeable," says Felicitas Albring. Warmth radiates from the new hansgrohe area. The Black Forest glows between the showers and the wood-look ceiling makes it feel more homely. The entire area appears more open and thus also larger than before. A revised lighting concept adds to the feel-good atmosphere. In addition, there is an area exclusively for experiencing the different spray types.

Clearly delineated is the AXOR brand. Anyone who showers here feels like they are in a 5-star wellness hotel, especially when the AXOR ShowerHeaven massages one’s back, and the water surrounds the body. One highlight is the "Smart Living" area. With the RainTunes and RainPad products, guests are immersed in tomorrow’s world of showering. The shower is controlled digitally, the light dims automatically, the music comes on and a screen creates a relaxing or invigorating atmosphere depending on the shower scenario.

The new Showerworld is open to the trade and the public from Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration is possible via the Hansgrohe Aquademie reception (+49 7836 51-3272).
