Each year, the ECB’s EUROPEAN CULTURAL DAYS showcase the rich culture of one of the EU’s member states. The events, hosted by the ECB and the national bank of the featured country, are always a cultural highlight for the Frankfurt Rhine-Main region. This year, between 17 October and 1 December, the ECB and the Deutsche Bundesbank will present Germany’s multifaceted culture. Hosted in and around Germany’s most international city, Frankfurt am Main, events range from a classical symphony to electronic music, from modern dance theatre to literature and contemporary art.
“Working together to enhance awareness of a country’s cultural heritage that is part of our roots and our identity offers a good opportunity to educate and prepare future generations, who will have a key role in strengthening cohesiveness and community spirit and in deciding the way in which the European institutions will develop. The mission of the EUROPEAN CULTURAL DAYS fully meets this aim.”
– Mario Draghi, President of the ECB
Under the motto, “unity in diversity,” the EUROPEAN CULTURE DAYS have celebrated cultural diversity and European Unity since 2003. Celebrating in Frankfurt am Main is particularly special, since more than 180 nationalities live and work together in the Mainmetropolis. This years events will be held under the patronage of Mario Draghi, President of the ECB, and Jens Weidmann, President of the Deutsche Bundesbank.
Frankfurt Main Finance is proud to sponsor these events and looks forward to an exciting and enriching program.
