Leopold Barracks

With its thick walls, battlements, corner turrets and embrasures, the five-sided barracks still look above all like a fortified stronghold. However, a large part of the building no longer has anything to do with the army. On the contrary: these days the Higher Institute of Fine Arts has made its home there. This building also hosts 12 workshops for graphic artists and 4 rehearsal rooms for musicians.
