Europe starts here!
European Heritage Label
The European Heritage Label brings together outstanding heritage sites with a symbolic European value. All the labelled sites have played a significant role in the history and culture of Europe or in European integration. Visitors can enjoy European Heritage sites as single destinations or as part of a tour. Either way, they will get a real feel for the breadth and scale for what Europe has to offer and what it has achieved. Born in 2006 as a joint initiative by national governments, the label is administered today by the European Commission. European Heritage sites are carefully selected at... national and EU level for their symbolic value and the activities they offer, which highlight their place and role in European history and/or in the development and promotion of the values that underpin European integration.
