Dudelange also contains a wide variety of architectural styles, fom the classical (French style) grand hotel to the bizarre house with projections in all directions, and being the winner of smallest balcony in the world ever, to the cinema /Arts centre CNA, which could stand for the opposite of CND as it appears to be promoting the attributes of a nuclear fallout shelter as concept in building design!
