As in 1995 and 2007, Luxembourg will once again be home to a European Capital of Culture in 2022.
The title will not only bestow international exposure on Luxembourg’s second largest city, Esch-sur-Alzette, located to the south of the country, but also a whole region comprising ten Luxembourgish and eight French municipalities. One of the goals is to develop the border region of Esch, and to discover and tread new shared cultural, touristic, and economic paths. Thanks to its activities and ideas, Esch2022 will fully meet the key intentions of the EU, which has been awarding the title since 1985: promote the diversity of European culture, create spaces to bring people together, and communicate European values.
