Icons are cult and holy images, mostly painted on wood and consecrated by the church. The House of Icons is situated in the Trarbach district and was opened in September 2004. Exhibited here are 112 icons, the life’s work of the most significant modern iconographer in Western Europe, Alexei Saweliev.
Furthermore, we gain a comprehensive insight into the use and nature of icons and also of their significance. With the House of Icons, a meeting place was created where there is time and space for peace and meditation.
