A temple dedicated to sports and culture
From its opening, the National Sports and Culture Centre was immediately positioned as a real "temple dedicated to sport and culture" nestled in a huge 60,000 m² building characterised by rounded and harmonious lines. To date, it has constantly evolved to offer sports enthusiasts, well-being enthusiasts, businesses, fans of major events and even gourmets an ever-increasing range of possibilities.
The Wellness Centre
As part of this constant evolution and this deliberate desire to offer the public ever more diversified, modern and attractive infrastructures, the Coque opened a new Relaxation Centre spread over two floors in 2008. Level 0 houses the locker rooms, toilets, showers, bar, steam room, tepidarium, whirlpool, hot and cold pools, themed showers, 3 relaxation zones, the snow cabin and foot baths. Not to mention, of course, the magnificent saunas: a modern Finnish sauna (80°C), a rustic Finnish sauna (70°C) and the bio sauna (60°C). Level 1 houses the gym, the pool’s relaxation area and an indoor terrace overlooking the pool, as well as toilets. In short, these are very comprehensive facilities that ideally meet the expectations and needs of a broad clientele focused on well-being.
The Aquatic Centre
The Aquatic Centre offers a 50-metre Olympic pool, a diving tower (1m, 3m, 5m, 7.5m, 10m), an initiation pool, a paddling pool, a gym and a relaxation area.
In addition to these pools open to the public, the Aquatic Centre also includes a health and fitness pool reserved for water classes, a 50-metre Olympic training pool used amongst others by sports federations and schools, as well as a diving well only accessible through the diving club and accompanied by an instructor holding the appropriate diploma.
Sports and business: unique business solutions
Taking advantage of the quality and diversity of sports facilities, and also relying on the many spaces available and the professionalism of a team entirely dedicated to the satisfaction of all types of clientele, the managers of the Coque quickly developed specific and original offers for Luxembourgish and foreign companies.
Business and event spaces
This desire to open up to the business world was actually built in to the Centre’s original design. From the beginning, the architects planned to fit the Centre with a large number of spaces for business and events in various sizes and atmospheres in order to meet the widest possible demand: from compact and well-equipped training or meeting rooms to the most majestic spaces named "Amphitheatre" (an auditorium with 200 seats), "Arena" (an event space of more than 4,300m² that can hold up to 8,300 people), "The Arcades" (which wrap around the "Arena" over 4,200m²), the "Gallery" (a modular space of 840 m²), and "Gymnasium" (which can hold up to 1,800 people over 1,240 m²).
Although they have very strong personalities, all these spaces have two things in common: they are all fitted with state-of-the-art technological equipment and offer exceptional modularity. Depending on their size and configurations, they can accommodate business events as varied as seminars, symposiums, general meetings, conferences, product presentations, workshops, business and consumer trade fairs and trade shows, company parties, galas, cocktail parties, etc.
This offer of rooms and spaces is supplemented with a programme of original and unique "business solutions" that are the only ones of their kind in Luxembourg. Very quickly, in fact, the Centre’s managers wanted to offer companies of all sizes team building solutions consisting in designing and implementing leisure and sports activities intended to develop or create skills within a group, improve cohesion and working conditions. This concept also aims to help a company’s employees get to know each other better and meet their colleagues outside the work environment, improve or create links, develop team spirit and facilitate group work or, where appropriate, mitigate any internal conflicts.
The result was not long in coming. Very quickly, Luxembourgish and foreign companies were seduced by this original offer for more than one reason. After several years providing "corporate" services, the National Sports and Culture Centre can provide a very long list of references including many well-known names in the Luxembourgish and European business world.
