The Robert Krieps Room

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.

Today this magnificent room is named 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. A refreshment counter located in the room’s basement provides an area to organize receptions, brunches or refreshments during intermission.  From the refreshment counter is a direct access onto the Forecourt of the Abbey.
