Access to culture
In 2010, as part its policy for promoting access to culture for all, the City of Luxembourg and the non-profit organisation Cultur'all entered into an agreement, undertaking to contribute to the "Kulturpass" programme. The "Kulturpass", which allows people experiencing economic hardship to gain access to culture, was officially launched on 17 October 2009, the World Day to Overcome Extreme Poverty.
The "Kulturpass" for individuals
This pass is issued upon request to persons or families experiencing difficult economic circumstances. It is valid for two years and entitles holders to free admission to all Luxembourg City museums, and to purchase entry tickets to events organised by the City's cultural partners at €1.50 (per event and per person), within the limit of the number of places available.
Anyone living in Luxembourg City who qualifies for cost-of-living benefits from the National Solidarity Fund (Fonds National de Solidarité), or has applied for international protection, may receive a "Kulturpass".
The "Kulturpass" for associations
This group pass for associations may be issued to non-profit social institutions active in the field of social exclusion and related issues such as a lack of vocational training, isolation, financial difficulties or housing problems.
This pass is subject to the same terms and conditions as the individual "Kulturpass", irrespective of whether its users have said individual pass.
The specific terms and conditions of this pass will be determined on a case-by-case basis and by mutual agreement between the cultural institution and the social partner (maximum number of people per group, price, opening hours, bookings, etc.). Group leaders must show this pass at the ticket booth before each visit.
Guided tours are possible as long as the social institution provides the venue in question with reasonable advance notice.
