EUROPEAN HERITAGE WEEKS2020-05-12T12:31:01+02:00

To celebrate the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, we organised the European Private Heritage Week from May 24-27, which was a great success gathering 642 houses opening in 17 countries and almost half a million visitors. Chapels and churches opened their doors and organized special activities, under the common banner ‘Our House, Your Heritage’. We then organised the 2nd edition in 2019 which was again a success!

The European Private Heritage Weeks has four objectives:

  • Raise awareness on the contribution of private owners of heritage buildings to society
  • Foster exchanges between owners/managers and the public
  • Increase synergies with the living arts
  • Promote public engagement, especially the young generation

Guidelines for Private Owners

The 3rd edition will take place on May 21-24, 2020. However, it is flexible dates and it is up to you to make the private heritage weeks match with the national public ones or to define other dates. We are happy to support you in that, we can personalized our Flyer according to the dates you choose and your country. We will also gather on a page in our website all the countries which are participating and make a map with the houses open during your country dates.
