Shoe factory meets cultural centre.
Sure, the Schungfabrik could have settled in an ultra-modern building, a futuristic structure, or a custom-made construction... but why bother when such a rare pearl already exists? This cultural centre is a place of welcome and exchange, a place with a soul, a history, and an atmosphere of its own. And if walls could talk… Back in 1912, Mathias Hubert decided to transform the building into a shoe factory. At its peak, his company had 70 employees and the building even needed to be expanded to meet the ever-increasing demand. After half a century of production, the keys were passed on to the commune of Kayl-Tétange in 1980.
Ten years later, the building became home to a vibrant centre for arts and culture. Today, the Schungfabrik hosts concerts, exhibitions and much more—proof of the building’s unique charm, no matter what activity it’s being used for.
