Aarhus has been appointed European Capital of Culture in 2017.
The title European Capital of Culture (ECOC) represents one of the most prestigious and prominent cultural events in Europe.
Every year two EU countries are appointed as host countries for the European Capital of Culture. In 2017 Paphos, Cyprus has also been nominated as ECOC. Copenhagen was the first Danish city to host the European Capital of Culture in 1996, and it will be many years before a Danish city can boast the title again.
Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 is supported by Central Denmark Region and all the municipalities in the region. It is deeply rooted in strong regional cooperation across the entire region.
