Embassy lecture

April 21, 2016 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

An illustrated lecture by Eddie Bohnert

Hosted by His Excellency the Luxembourg Ambassador Mr Patrick Engelberg.

Drawing on a wealth of historical and visual material, this lecture tells the story of the rebuilding of Luxembourg City as a Renaissance town in the 16th century, after it had been destroyed by war, fire, and the catastrophic gunpowder explosion of 1554.

Two separate maps were included in the magnificent ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’, the first atlas of town plans.

As places are limited, please make sure to book early!
