In Europe

Attracting thousands of visitors every year, the European Heritage Days are now organised in the 49 state signatories to the European Cultural Convention, under the name European Heritage Days.

All across Europe, during weekends in September, the European Heritage Days open the doors of numerous sites and monuments, many of which are usually closed to the public, enabling European citizens to discover and learn about their shared cultural heritage, while encouraging them to take an active role in preserving and developing it for existing and future generations.

Information on European Heritage Days in other countries is available at the website
