The city of Zahle is located in the geometric center of Lebanon, between Beirut and Damascus and the historical cities of Baalbeck and Anjar, in the fertile Bekaa plain. Zahle is known as the city of education, poetry and wine. The lack of places for cultural exchange made it necessary to create a cultural center that combines the culture and tradition of the city. As a construction site, the broke area on the northernmost edge of the city is just outside the gate of the so-called Wine Valley, a pilgrimage site for tourists. There are restaurants and a pedestrian promenade along the banks of the river that flows through the city. In addition to the Wine Valley, the St. Mary Church with its 60-meter-high church tower, which stands on a high hill, is another hotspot of the city on which the new building of the "Cultural Station Zahle" is aligned and therefore located between a cultural and religious pilgrimage site. The interplay of wine, art, culture and education is to be re-examined and the tradition of this region can be explored in the cultural center. In addition to exhibition spaces, to a library and event space, a dialogue center is used for exchange and communication, which is of great importance for this region. Historically, Zahle was an important place to stay at for many pilgrims and travelers. In addition to the already existing hotels, a boarding house will be set up for visitors, students and teachers.
