You are now standing in the middle of the large outer courtyard of the “Neimënster” – a cultural exchange centre since 2004 which offers  a variety of exhibitions, lectures and events, but also artists’ accommodation.

On your left, you can see the “Tutesall”, where prisoners had to glue paper bags (Tuten in Luxembourgish) when the whole complex served as the national men’s prison from 1869 to 1985. The Tutesall was refurbished in 1989 to the plans of the architectural practice Hermann & Valentiny.

The building in front of you dates back to the time when this place served as a military hospital, from 1815 to 1867.

All the other buildings are even older. They were built in 1606 to house an abbey. Today you can still find a church, a chapel and a cloister.

Now go to the internal courtyard on your right. Here you can see various elements of contemporary architecture such as the glass roof and its metal structure which creates a covered space full of sunlight. These elements were added when the complex was converted into a cultural centre to the design of architects Jean Ewert and Jeannot Lorang, work was completed in 2004.

Super Initiative, bonne balade avec les enfants, le suspense est parfait et très bien orchestré, pour aller jusqu’au bout.
A refaire absolument à Clausen, moins éloigné pour l’aboutissement. Bon outil pour faire connaître et visiter non nouveaux lieux dès l’été / automne prochain 😉
