Experiencing Europe through its heritage
The European Heritage Label was created in 2007 by the European Commission to celebrate and symbolise Europe’s cultural heritage. The sites awarded the label cover the huge period from the continent’s prehistory up to today and include monuments and natural, urban and symbolic sites, not forgetting its intangible and subaquatic heritage. The vast range of the sites covered by the Label offer a vivid illustration both of the wealth of Europe’s cultural heritage and of the European Union’s motto “United in diversity”.
A fast-growing network
Sites awarded the label undertake to launch activities for encouraging the feeling of belonging to the European Community. In Strasbourg, the action plan sets out to bring the European values to life and to outline Strasbourg’s role on the European stage.
The number of sites awarded the label continues to grow, forming an expanding network. The 48 current members include the European Centre of Deported Resistance Members in Natzwiller and the Robert Schumann House in Scy-Chazelles, both of which are in the Grand Est region. 10 new sites have been awarded the label in 2020.Travel through the different sites
