Thank you very much for your interest in our application for the European Capital of Culture in 2025 - and also for your patience. Finally we'll reveal the last secret and present our complete Bid Book Agora of Europe.
Hundreds, even thousands, of hours of thought and work have gone into Agora of Europe, with the participation of so many people, far too many to name them all here. With this application, a new dynamic of mutual inspiration and networking has emerged in our city, which has created a spirit of optimism far beyond the cultural scene. And perhaps there will be new impulses through its final release.
To read our iF Design Award, Red Dot Award and German Design Award-winning bid book Agora of Europe, you now have three options:
- You can download the Bid Book Agora of Europe in the original layout, as a pdf file in English or German:
Here you will find the English version (pdf-file, 13.81 MB)
Here you will find the German version (pdf-file, 14.09 MB)
- You can browse Agora of Europe digitally:
Here you will find the English version
Here you will find the German version
- You can also read a German version Agora of Europe in a paperback format online. After the first paperback-edition was sold out in no time at all, a new one was printed again. This edition is a continuous text, with no questions or tables to be found like in the original. Instead, you will find more pictures and links to previously unpublished videos, to partners, press reports and much more.
Whichever option you choose, we hope you enjoy reading!
Here Now Everyone for Europe!
