The House and Facilities

Dancing in the Kuckucksnest

The Kuckucksnest (Cuckoo's Nest) is a large and comfortable house for groups of 20-30 guests. Further accommodation can be rented nearby if necessary. The beautiful 100-m² dance hall with a heatable floor makes it particularly suitable for dancing, singing, yoga, and anything requiring space, but there are also comfortable dining and sitting rooms for relaxation. We are situated in a tiny village in a lovely wooded area 6 km south of Schlüchtern, roughly 80 km north-east of Frankfurt, and easily reached by car or train and bus.

We offer:

  • 28 beds in 13 rooms (see room plan)
  • A small apartment with shower and WC
  • Dance hall with heated dance floor and mirrors (curtained)
  • Various dining and sitting rooms
  • A beautiful garden with trees and lawns for relaxation

We are particularly well-known for our tasty and varied food based on fresh and (as far as possible) organic ingredients. Our speciality is international vegetarian cookery.

The Kuckucksnest is especially famous in the English-speaking world for the Scottish country dance workshops being held here throughout the year, at a variety of levels from beginners to the very advanced – virtually always with live music and frequently featuring famous teachers from Scotland or other European countries. All classes except introductory ones are usually taught in English. These workshops are being organised by the RSCDS Central Germany Branch and more information, including dates, is available from their web site or their workshop flyer (warning: monstrous file).
