We want to become the European Capital of Culture - with the central idea of "RESPONSIBILITY!"

Magdeburg has a long history that is intimately tied to the history of Europe itself. The people of Magdeburg have a keen enthusiasm and great willingness to realise ideas that fire their imagination. That is one of the major reasons why Magdeburg is capable of winning the competition for the title European Capital of Culture 2025.

Our application will focus on the following key topics: "Lost and Found", "Read and Rights – Magdeburg's humanistic heritage“, „Made in Magdeburg“ and „Colours“

Our application

European Capital of Culture is a title conferred by the European Union, generally held by two EU cities at once for the period of one year. The choice is not based on existing conditions in a city, but on the result of a competition process. It will be a terrific feeling to show our beautiful city to visitors from all over Europe in 2025!

Our Team

The organizing office develops the application together with many other members of the city and organizes the application process.
