Nuremberg applies to become European Capital of Culture 2025

The city of Nuremberg wants to become European Capital of Culture 2025 and be together with the locals, the cultural artists and visitors from all over the world, the centre of European culture and life. "The application for the European City of Culture 2025 paves the way for the future of Nuremberg", says mayor Dr. Ulrich Maly. It will give the city the opportunity to develop further and be ready for the coming generations.

Until the year 2018 the city will develop, together with the inhabitants and creative artists, the topics and strategy in order to submit an extraordinary application in 2019. That year a panel of experts will do a pre-selection of two to five cities, that will be asked to submit a more detailed application.

The next coming step is to define which kind of European City of Culture Nuremberg wants to be. The locals have different opportunities to influence this process and define the identity of the application. On one hand they can answer  online four questions about the USP of Nuremberg. On the other hand they can join "Let's Talk" discussion events, where they can discuss about the application together with international experts.
