  • As part of the centenary of the Great War, spend a pleasant time during this exhibition and discover life in the Krug cellars!

    As part of the European Heritage Days and the centenary 14-18, Krug offers visitors to experience life in the caves during the First World War. From the beginning of the conflict, Joseph Krug, director of the Home and grand-son of the founder, is drafted into the French army. His wife Jeanne Krug, supported by this staff strives to maintain the activity. It also helps Rémois war victims. From September 1914 to November 1918, Reims suffered 1,051 days of bombing. Reims people took refuge in the cellars where life is organized. An exhibition of scenography recently rediscovered unpublished photographs and documents from the period reflects the daily life of refugees in the Krug cellars.
