On 19 March and 20 March 2022, the City of Luxembourg invited the public to the "Meet at Schluechthaus" open house at the Old Slaughterhouse in Hollerich. The event featured a host of activities, workshops and stands.



As part of the European Heritage Days from 21 to 29 September 2019 hinging around the theme of "Arts and Entertainment", there was an Open Day at the Schluechthaus in Hollerich on 21 September 2019.

The aim was to raise awareness among local residents and the public about the future redevelopment project for the site and to garner visitors' input to help draw up specifications that will serve as the basis for the architectural design.
