Hildesheim 2025

Hildesheim 2025 — A European Province of Culture

We are a European Province of Culture. As we believe that a deeper interconnection of cities, towns and rural areas is a key for achieving true dialogue, care and solidarity in Europe, we are bidding as a city and region. The future lies in with the province, as it is the province where Europe is most akin.

Hildesheim is bidding together with its surrounding district: The towns and municipalities Alfeld, Algermissen, Bad Salzdetfurth, Bockenem, Diekholzen, Elze, Freden, Giesen, Harsum, Holle, Lamspringe, Nordstemmen, Samtgemeinde Leinebergland, Sarstedt, Schellerten, Sibbesse and Söhlde all together want to become European Capital of Culture.

What is European Capital of Culture?

The EU initiated the title European Capital of Culture in 1985. It‘s all about Europe‘s diversity and common cultural heritage as well as reinforcing a general European public. Since 2004 the title has been awarded at least to two cities in the same year.

On 28 October 2020 it will be announced, which German city will be entitled to be European Capital of Culture 2025. This year, four cities in Slovenia are also competing for the title in 2025.

Our Bid

We published our second bid book 21. September. “We Care – Beets, Roses and the Meaning of Life" lays out a cultural strategy for the Hildesheim region as well as a detailed artistic programme for Hildesheim 2025. It includes all in all 58 cultural projects and events, involving around 500 partners – from Hildesheim, Germany, Europe and the rest of the world.

The project management office of Hildesheim 2025 thanks all contributors for their input and support.
