The Robert Krieps Auditorium

The former prison workshop, at other times known as Tutesall, is home to a 283-seat theater which is equipped for music, plays, dance, movies and projection conferences. The gentle and warm aura of the room, the velvety darkness, the overpowering presence of wood, the soaring ceiling, the lighting, the openings to the outside and the spectacular aspect of the Krudelspuert (door of the fortress exposed during the contruction of the Wenzel circuit) give this room a very special aura. An atmosphere of intimacy can be felt, no borders separate spectators from the actors or the orators, the first row of seats having been installed on the massive dark wooden planks of the stage.

A basement refreshment counter allows for receptions and brunches. It also offers the possibility of purchasing beverages during intermission and has a terrace which is open in fine weather offering a view onto the Alzette and onto the walkway of the Wenzel itinerary.

This magnificent auditorium is named today after Robert Krieps, Minister of Justice and Culture, who, as a former deportee imprisoned at the age of 17 in the Grund prison, had the idea and the will to transform this former place of detention and sadness, into a place of culture and exchange.
