Tree of the Ciarus

A bit of history

Hospitality: our lifeblood

Ciarus boasts a long tradition of hosting school parties and students. It is a non-profit organisation driven by principled individuals with a commitment to shared values. The story began back in 1834, with the creation of SEMIS (Société Évangélique de Mission Intérieure de Strasbourg) and the purchase of the current building, which opened in 1895. Since 1994, Ciarus has managed the entire building. The same year saw the launch of a programme of major extension works. Ciarus has been a place where people have come together for work, education and pleasure for more than a century. It's a story that continues to this day...
