Chemnitz to be European Capital of Culture 2025 in Germany
Oct 29th 2020

Yesterday the chairperson of the European Capitals of Culture Expert panel announced that the city of Chemnitz has been recommended for the European Capital of Culture 2025 title in Germany. Hosting a European Capital of Culture is a wonderful opportunity for a city and its surrounding area to bring culture right to the heart of their various communities and for their citizens to discover the rich diversity of cultural expressions in the European Union and beyond. Visitors from Europe and all over the world will also have the possibility to discover the city, its cultural assets and its creativity. Now, more than ever, developing European partnerships is essential to reinforce the sense of community and solidarity between our peoples (source: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/creative-europe/content/european-capital-culture-2025-germany_de).

Chemnitz is just 30km away from EUROPEA school Fachschulzentrum Freiberg-Zug. We are very proud and happy about this decision and will try to make an appropriate EUROPEAn contribution.

Moreover, our Editorial Group found out that some of the next European Capitals of Culture are in our home countries: 2022 Esch-sur-Alzette/Lux, 2023 Veszprém/Hun, 2024 Tartu/Est and 2025 Chemnitz/Ger… That seems to be a good basis for a new storyline… Keep curious…
