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

In September 2019 we handed in our first application, the bid book 1. In Beets, Roses and the Meaning of Life we described the special features of our region, its charm and its chances to evolve.

Hildesheim’s most famous symbol is a rose bush: A mythological reminder of the past, of great cultural and spiritual blossoming. It also stands for hope and resilience, for recovery from the collaps of WWII. And then, on the other side of the spectrum, there is this wrinkly field crop: the sugar beet. Our most important agricultural product sits firmly in the ground and is committed to the present.
