Scy-Chazelles: the house of Europe

In 1924 Robert Schuman purchased the estate in Scy-Chazelles, a Lorraine village on the slopes of Mont St.Quentin that forms the backdrop to the area of Metz. Today the house has been transformed into a museum and convention centre. The buildings and the gardens are austere and yet simple integrating harmoniously into the landscape of the Moselle valley.

Scy-Chazelles is of significance in terms of European memorials in that in honours one of the Father's of Europe. The location provides an ideal place for contemplation and many come here to do just that. Across the street lies the fortified 12th Century church where Robert Schuman now rests. The Robert Schuman House for Europe organises cultural and educational events that initiate the visitor to the life and works of Robert Schuman himself, as well as the way Europe has been constructed and continues to develop today.

The Robert Schuman Centre is available to a great number of organisations that want to hold events there and make the most of its resources and facilities; these include companies, regional and local organisations and also NGO's. Due to its ideal geographical location it is well placed to receive groups for informative, educational, political or trades events. The Centre can also provide support in terms of organising for interpreters, catering and accommodation on such occasions. This of course includes cultural trips around the area as well as hostess and secretarial services...

The Robert Schuman House was one of the first sites to be labelled "European Heritage" in March 2007. On 9th January 2012 the Robert Schuman House in Scy-Chazelles received the "Illustrious Houses" label on the part of the French Communications and Culture Ministry.
