On Friday 26 and Saturday 27 April 2024, the City of Luxembourg and the Grande-Duchesse Joséphine-Charlotte Residence (Konviktsgaart) will organise an open-day event.

This event is intended as an opportunity to interact with the teams, to visit the residence and to participate in a friendly activity with residents.

The public can come from 08:30 to have a croissant and coffee. Guided tours of the accommodation will be available throughout the day in Luxembourgish and French. The Konviktsgaart will also offer a lunch for €20, drinks not included. Various information stands, a candle workshop with a beekeeper as well as a pétanque game (or Bingo in case of rain) are planned.

Located in a quiet, green and secure setting and yet a few minutes from the city centre and near a bus stop, the Konviktsgaart is made up of 103 comfortable accommodations, with a living space varying between 39 and 55 m2, and seven “short stay” rooms (holiday beds) for people aged over 65. Konviktsgaart also offers various related services, such as a restaurant, a cafeteria, a grocery store, a hairdressing salon, a bank counter, a library, a laundry room and an underground car park. The offer is completed by the weekly celebration of a mass in the Konviktsgaart chapel, gentle gym and dance classes for the elderly and regular activities and outings (concerts, cultural, friendly and culinary meetings) organised within the centre.
