"René Hartmann" Sports Centre

Municipal Administration of Dudelange

The René Hartmann sports’ centre is a major asset for the city of Dudelange because of its versatility and multifunctionality. A phase of work was essential and today allows it to offer a wide range of indoor sports activities, from martial arts to climbing walls.


A colourful wall installation by the Luxembourg artist Armand Strainchamps now covers the corridor, in the continuity of the entrance hall. This artistic installation, made of perforated metal plates on which a sports’ shoe is gradually tied, is a real invitation to physical activity. On the ceiling, zenithal openings of different colours bring rhythm to this large corridor and create a beautiful contrast with the sobriety of the concrete.

Diversity of activities

The complex includes two multifunctional rooms. The largest is equipped with stands with 590 seats, half of which are telescopic stands. There is also a swimming pool with 2 pools, along which stands stands 180 seats, to comfortably admire the water services. The climbing room offers a 15m high wall with 100 to 120 tracks of different difficulty. The fitness room, divided on two levels into a cardio room and a cad-power room, is located on the site of the old swimming pool. A dojo for martial arts, a 50 m long indoor athletics track and even an ice bath complete the complex's range of services. The major challenge was to maintain a certain harmony among all the spaces of the sports’ centre and to modernise the whole while remaining perfectly functional. A bet taken.
