European Heritage Days

European Heritage Days provide access to thousands of rarely opened sites and unique events to over 20 million people every year.

During the European Heritage Days, doors are opened to thousands of monuments and sites (some of them normally closed to the public), allowing people to enjoy free visits, learn about their shared cultural heritage and become actively involved in the safeguarding of Europe’s heritage for present and future generations.

European Heritage Days take place in the 50 signatory countries to the European Cultural Convention every year in September. It is organised in close collaboration with national coordinators.
