Community Centre Ludesch

You are in front of the Community Centre in Ludesch, at Raiffeisenstrasse 56. The town of Ludesch, with its 3,300 inhabitants is the largest of the 4 Blumenegg communities.

With a surface area of 11.4 square kilometres, many small and medium sized businesses have settled here, forming the town‘s main source of income.   With their strong sense of environmental awareness, the townspeople built a new community centre that will be an excellent example for years to come.  The regional, Silver Birch tree played a special role in the project.
