European Cultural Days of the ECB

About the Cultural Days

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this video of some of the highlights of previous years’ Cultural Days events.

We look forward to seeing you again at our Cultural Days events in 2022.

The European Union (EU) has its foundations in shared ideas and values, while also being home to a rich and varied array of cultures, made up of the traditions of the individual countries and regions. The European Cultural Days of the ECB provide an opportunity to celebrate this “unity in diversity”.

Each year, the European Cultural Days of the ECB focus on a different Member State of the European Union. Towards the end of the year Frankfurt am Main becomes the setting for many high-quality artistic performances, ranging from music, dance and theatre to art lectures and exhibitions, literary events and films, as well as events for children. The ECB organises the Cultural Days together with the national central bank of the featured country and with the support of its many partners, who are committed to promoting European arts and culture.

Celebrating Europe 2019

Our 2019 European Cultural Days was dedicated to Europe’s common identity to celebrate a very special anniversary: 20 years since the introduction of our single currency – the euro.

To mark the occasion, a truly European programme showcased some of the most well-loved pieces of music by European composers, performed by world class musicians from countries all over our continent.
