Title goes to Chemnitz
Nuremberg is not European Capital of Culture 2025. We congratulate Chemnitz on the title and thank the Kulturstiftung der Länder, the jury and all the fellow bidding cities Chemnitz, Dresden, Hannover, Hildesheim, Magdeburg, Gera and Zittau for the great competition and their collegial exchange! Of course, we accept the decision with great regret, but we are also determined to pursue the central projects of the application without a title. More details will follow.
Special thanks to all those who helped shape our application for the Capital of Culture - the many creative people, artists, initiatives, curators, employees of the city administration and many more!
