Cercle cité – Luxembourg City


The Cercle Municipal is located at the eastern end of the Place d’Armes, 
in the historic central Ville Haute quarter of the city.
It  is part of Luxembourg’s life since 1909. 


In 2006, comprehensive renovation and restoration work was carried out on the Cercle

 in order to transform it into a convention and exhibition centre.
 The work was completed in April 2011 providing not only enhancements to the Grande Salle
 and the Foyer but also to the cellar, which can now house exhibitions, and the former loft, 
now the fifth floor, where four rooms form a new conference centre.

Exhibition of photography – Edouard Kutter

Showing 130 photographs by the Luxembourg photographer Edouard Kutter,
 representing different views of the capital, buildings and squares as well as people
 in the urban surroundings, the exhibition shows off the architecture, the culture,
and the life lived in Luxembourg City around the 1960s.

 

 

The exhibiton is open every day until Sunday 11 september, from 11:00 till 19:00.

  10. Oh, you must have enjoyed this exhibition! Love that old camera but I wouldn't want to lug it around. So nice you can visit such beautiful places with your beautiful children!

    I remember the 1960s well (so I'd probably relate to the photos)…I don't remember 1909, but that was the year my mother was born!

    Have a great day!

  11. How lucky you get to see this photographer's work! Lovely building as well. Somehow it reminds me of the Palais Royal with its arches.
    Bon weekend,

  12. Beautiful building, Léia, and it sounds like it's getting good use in its restored condition.
    I love the old camera, too. It reminds me of my dad, who collected old cameras, but they were all ruined when he didn't store them properly one winter.
