“Alberta Temple to Reopen; London, Swiss to be Remodeled,” Ensign, Apr. 1990, 78
The Alberta Temple, which has been undergoing remodeling, will reopen this summer, and the London and Swiss Temples will close for remodeling.
In a letter to priesthood leaders in the Alberta Temple District, the First Presidency said that remodeling of the temple in Cardston, Alberta, will be completed by midsummer and that a public open house and rededication will be planned during the latter part of the summer.
The London Temple and the Swiss Temple were scheduled to close on April 1 for renovation. It was estimated that they will be closed for one year.
With these two temples closed, the Europe Area Presidency is attempting to make schedules available for members who want to attend the other three temples on the Continent: in Frankfurt, Federal Republic of Germany; Freiberg, German Democratic Republic; and Stockholm, Sweden.
The Swiss Temple, located in Zollikofen, a suburb north of Bern, was completed and dedicated in 1955. The London Temple, located twenty-five miles south of London, was completed and dedicated in 1958.
The Oakland Temple, in California, is currently undergoing renovation.
