Discover Chemnitz!

Johannisplatz mit Blick zum Roten Turm

You can see modernity and modernism reflected in every aspect of Chemnitz – as an aesthetic principle, in how we think, and in how we act. With ingenuity, passion, and a love of all things beautiful, Chemnitz’s citizens have always been the driving force behind their city’s development.

There’s a lot to discover in Chemnitz: architecturally fascinating buildings from the Gründerzeit period, industrial monuments, and futuristic modern structures. Together, they shape our cityscape and build bridges from the past to the present and on into the future.

The decision has been made. Chemnitz’s bid for the title of European Capital of Culture 2025 has made it onto the shortlist.

Mayor Barbara Ludwig said, “People of Chemnitz, this is a huge opportunity for our city: we could become European Capital of Culture in 2025. Today we are another step closer to achieving our goal.

The European jury has recognised our city’s potential and wants to see more from us. We have been invited to submit a second comprehensive bid book by June 2020, including fully developed projects and a detailed programme for 2025; an invitation to Europe that is so convincing it cannot be refused.


What is special about?

The European Capital of Culture enjoys unique attention across Europe. A city that wishes to become a Capital of Culture must offer more than just a series of events or classically beautiful architecture: it is about showcasing the special features and strengths of the city and developing a programme that promotes the idea of being part of Europe, strengthens the citizens’ sense of community and drives forward a broad cultural spectrum and sustainable development.
