Chemnitz 2025 – THE economic stimulus programme

If we win the title “European Capital of Culture 2025”, it’s THE economic stimulus programme for Chemnitz. What we are now investing in this victory, is returned as profit for more than 10 years. This victory will give new, positive energy to the city and the region. 

  • Everything starts from 28.10.2020, the day of victory.

  • The first curious people immediately set off for Chemnitz.

  • In 2025 about 2 million people will travel here, that is about 40,000 guests per week. Leeuwarden was 2018 Capital of Culture. The Dutch city with 100,000 inhabitants, has even 5 million guests counted.

  • Sales in shops, cafés, restaurants and hotels are rising. 

  • Winning cities of comparable size have additional revenues between 150 to 500 million euros.

  • This creates more jobs, wages can rise.

  • This positive development will keep young people in the region. They are not going to Dresden, Leipzig or Berlin.

  • Opportunities are massive: Economic security and social justice, cultural offers for many interests and a new strength.

With your support we can make this a resounding success. A success that makes Chemnitz stronger. It’s great that you are with us.
