Exhibitor profile

The Council of Europe’s cultural routes are an invitation to discover Europe’s rich and diverse heritage.
The programme was launched in 1987 with the Declaration of Santiago de Compostela which made the Ways of Saint James the first Council of Europe cultural route.

Exploring Europe is a never-ending adventure, and our cultural routes offer different ways to do so through a truly individual experience of discovering town and countryside, people and their know-how, gastronomy and craftwork.

Our trans-national routes bring people and places together in networks of shared heritage and traditions. The routes are a way for the 47 countries of the Council of Europe to engage in intercultural dialogue, to tell the story of their shared history and explore European identity. They are also a tool for cultural, social and economic development.

Today there are 26 cultural routes certified by the Council of Europe, providing a wealth of leisure and educational activities for all citizens across Europe and beyond, and are key resources for responsible tourism and sustainable development. The members of the routes networks work together to create attractive destinations for visitors offering a variety of activities and creative ways of enjoying Europe.

The Council of Europe implements its cultural routes programme in the framework of an Enlarged Partial Agreement between 22 member states . Its technical agency, the European Institute of Cultural Routes,is based in Luxembourgand funded by the Grand Duchy. The programme is also carried out through joint programmes with the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry).

More information on the programme and on the cultural routes is available on our website.
