Ursuline Winter Garden

The impressive school and convent complex of the Ursuline nuns was once an internationally acclaimed ‘pensionnat de demoiselles’ – a boarding school for the education of young ladies. This prestige is reflected in the architecture which ranges from neoclassicism to art nouveau.

Visit the various parts of the listed convent building such as the Ursula Room, the Alps Room, the Empire Hallway, the Reception Refectory, the magnificent convent church, the Piano Gallery, the Oratory and the museum.

The art-nouveau winter garden was built in 1900 to provide a reception area worthy of notable visitors to the school.
