Between 17 September and 17 November 2020, an exhibition on "The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe in Luxembourg" will take place at Hall du Funiculaire, Middle Station, Pfaffenthal (Luxembourg). The exhibition is organised by the European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR), with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg National Railway Company (CFL).
During two months, the exhibition will give the opportunity to discover the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe with network members in Luxembourg, as well as all the "Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe" bearing witness to our shared European cultural heritage.
The exhibition will follow 8 Cultural Routes certified by the Council of Europe in Luxembourg: Santiago de Compostela Pilgrim Routes, Saint Martin of Tours Route, Iter Vitis Route, European Route of Historic Thermal Towns, Fortified Towns of the Grande Region, European Route of Industrial Heritage, Liberation Route Europe and the European Route of Jewish Heritage.
Member since 2011, Luxembourg is one of the founding Council of Europe member States of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (EPA).
The European Institute of Cultural Routes (EICR) is the technical agency created in 1998 under an agreement between the Council of Europe and the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, located in the Abbey of Neumünster in Luxembourg. The EICR gives advice to Cultural Routes and candidate networks, organizes training and visibility activities and coordinates a University Network for Cultural Routes Studies.
