Waassertuerm + Pomhouse

Where? 1b, rue du Centenaire, L-3475 Dudelange

Exhibitions in the heart of Luxembourg’s industrial heritage

Consisting of a restored water tower and a pumping station, the Waassertuerm+Pomhouse site forms a remarkable architectural ensemble that is part of the wealth of Luxembourg's industrial heritage. The former industrial wasteland has been converted into an exhibition and event venue and is now dedicated to the audiovisual arts.

The water tower contains two galleries inside the base and the tank which house temporary exhibitions.

The visitor is constantly confronted with the proportions of a tower seen from the outside and therefore accessible from the inside. By accessing the tower tank, the visitor can enjoy an impressive panoramic view of the abandoned site of the rolling mill, the town of Dudelange and the surrounding landscape. During this ascent, the visitor can take a step back from the first part of the exhibition, before plunging back into the subject in the tank. Finally, the no less impressive descent leads via the hexagonal external staircase to the panoramic terrace and the site's "wooded garden". Just next door, at the foot of the tower, is the former pumping station, which has been transformed into an event venue and a platform for meetings and exchanges.

Composed of a restored water tower and a pumping station, the Waassertuerm + Pomhouse site forms a remarkable architectural ensemble which is part of the wealth of Luxembourg's industrial heritage.
