L’heure bleue is a museum in the heart of the “Centre nature et forêt Ellergronn” in Esch/Alzette. It is an artwork inspired by the eponymous phenomenon: a moment in the day when the sky is electric blue and nature is completely silent. A platform near this architecture offers a space to experience the real phenomenon every day. Also, events and meetings around societal and cultural issues (ecology, history, biology, poetry, music, etc.) will be organized throughout the year as part of Esch 2022, European Capital of Culture. 

« En fait c’est pas une heure, c’est une minute. Juste avant l’aube, quand le ciel est d’un bleu électrique, il y a une minute de silence. Les oiseaux de jours sont pas encore réveillés, et les oiseaux de nuit sont déjà couchés, et là, là c’est de silence. »
