The Hague: Capital of Culture in 2018

Every year, two European countries may supply a Capital of Culture. These cities organise a year-long program of cultural events that are of interest to all inhabitants of Europe. The Netherlands has supplied a Capital of Culture twice so far: Amsterdam in 1987 and Rotterdam in 2001. In 2018 it again falls to the Netherlands to designate a Capital of Culture, along with Malta.


The Hague, Utrecht, Maastricht, Eindhoven and Leeuwarden are competing for the honour. In 2013, a jury consisting of Dutch and international experts will decide which Dutch city may carry the title of European Capital of Culture in 2018. As part of this competition, each city compiles a bid book that describes why the city is a suitable candidate.
