The Schluechthaus site (Old Slaughterhouse), which belongs to the City of Luxembourg, covers an area of around 2.5 ha, including a number of green spaces. Situated in Hollerich near major thoroughfares, several schools and the future Porte de Hollericheco-district, the Schluechthaus occupies a superb location in southern Luxembourg City.

After the slaughterhouse was closed in 1997, the buildings on this site were used for a few years to accommodate the City of Luxembourg's Service Sports (Sports Department), a skatepark and several storage areas.
