Congratulations to Chemnitz, Nova Gorica and Gorizia, the European Capitals of Culture 2025!
Hildesheim was a candidate for the title “European Capital of Culture 2025”, and as a cultural region with new perspectives for Europe we made it to the shortlist of five German cities. That is a great success in itself!
We would like to thank all those involved for their enormous commitment und send our congratulations to Chemnitz, Nova Gorica and Gorizia, the European Capitals of Culture 2025!
Hildesheim: A European Province of Culture
A deeper understanding is needed between urban spaces and rural areas to prevent European societies from drifting apart. Hildesheim and its region gained a new, common strength by bidding for European Capital of Culture. We enlarged our international networks, especially with other rural regions of Europe. Our logo says it all: Hildesheim – A European Province of Culture. We want to build on this success story and develop the City and District of Hildesheim into this European Province of Culture by 2030.
