Celebration of the VNF and Heritage Foundation partnership at the Palais du Rhin in Strasbourg

Voies navigables de France is organizing a celebration on October 11, 2021 at the Palais du Rhin to thank the Heritage Mission carried by the Heritage Foundation, which enables the Kembs-Niffer lock (Haut-Rhin), designed by the architect Le Corbusier to receive € 300,000 for its restoration.

The Heritage Mission, led by the Heritage Foundation and supported by Stéphane Bern, unveiled last year the amounts allocated to the 101 winning sites for the 2020 season. Among them, two waterway restoration projects of France were selected, including the Kembs-Niffer lock (Haut-Rhin), designed by architect Le Corbusier, financed to the tune of € 300,000.

Voies navigables de France would like to thank the Fondation du patrimoine for its support in preserving the historical and technical richness of its works which mark out French waterways and which make Voies navigables de France a full player in the heritage of our country. .

To celebrate this partnership, we are very happy to invite you to the Palais du Rhin, headquarters of the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the Grand Est in Strasbourg, on Monday, October 11, 2021:

  • 6:30 p.m. Welcome from Ms. Christelle Creff, Regional Director of Cultural Affairs for the Grand Est
  • 6:45 p.m. VNF & Heritage Foundation talks
  • 7:30 p.m. Cocktail dinner

Afin de faire revivre le patrimoine fluvial, la Mission Mécénat de VNF, en partenariat avec la Fondation du Patrimoine, a lancé un appel aux dons pour la restauration de cet ouvrage remarquable.

Un grand merci à tous les particuliers qui ont déjà manifesté leur soutien. Grâce à leurs dons, ils participent concrètement à la co-construction d’un projet d’intérêt général aux côtés de Voies navigables de France et réaffirment un attachement fort à leur territoire.
