The year 2020 is marked by the 25th anniversary of the entry of the City of Luxembourg in the UNESCO World Heritage List. In order to show this precious heritage at its best, the “Photothèque” of the City of Luxembourg has delved into both the old and the recent collections of photographs which form its own archives.

The result is a visual and seemingly tangible homage to this UNESCO World Heritage site, revealing its ever-changing appearance.

The exhibition entitled “The City of Luxembourg, from fortress to UNESCO World Heritage Site“ presents to the public photographs depicting the evolution over time of the old quarters of the city, the fortifications, buildings and other structures within the World Heritage site.

This is a testament to the rich and sometimes turbulent past of the capital, the origins of which date back to the year 963.

The photos selected for this exhibition were taken by renowned photographers including Pol Aschman, Pierre Bertogne, Charles Bernhoeft, Marc Betzen, Pierre Brandebourg, Batty Fischer, Auguste Jungblut, Tony Krier, Dominique Kuhn, Edouard Kutter Jr., Théo Mey, Marcel Schroeder, Lé Sibenaler and Charles Soubry as well as unknown photographers whose works are held in various collections.
