Back toHeerlen's Colors of History

SCHUNCK Glaspaleis - Peutz

Since 2020, several artists from the SCHUNCK Museum collection have created murals in the staircase of the iconic building. These interventions enhance the architecture, spanning across all five floors of the indoor staircase. Approximately every 6 months, a new artist is invited to contribute a mural, making each artwork inherently temporary. 

This 'glass palace' is not only a museum, library, and music and dance school, but also an iconic building for Heerlen an the region. Curious about the history of this architectural masterpiece by Frits Peutz? Visit the free exhibition on the mezzanine in the central hall. 

Got some spare time? Enjoy a cocktail at Mijnstreek on the fifth floor. From here: you can take in panoramic views of the entire city and beyond. It's the perfect opportunity to check if you've seen all the murals (spoiler alert: probably not).
