Neu-Isenburg – 29 Jun. 2015 | The Council of Europe Cultural Routes Programme and the European Institute of Cultural Routes in co‐operation with the European Travel Commission and Cultural Route of the Huguenot and Waldensian trail are organising a bloggers trip along the trail of the Huguenots and Waldensians!
The groups of bloggers and photographers will hike along this trail in Germany and Switzerland from 13 to 17 July 2015, exploring magnificent landscape, cultural heritage and learning the history of these religious refugees.
Follow the bloggers and their diary posts and blogs, and discover the endless journey along the Council of Europe Cultural Routes. Become a visitor of any of the 33 Council of Europe Culture Routes and share your discoveries and experiences!
The Council of Europe launched its cultural routes programme in 1987 with the Declaration of Santiago de Compostela, which made the Ways of Saint James the first Council of Europe Cultural Route. The idea was to show how Europe’s history and culture are based on voyages and exchanges between people, and how the rich diversity of the living past can help to understand the present and explore European identity.
Today there are 33 certified cultural routes crossing the whole of Europe and exploring all kinds of themes, from Mozart to Megalithic culture, from the Olive tree to industrial ceramics, from thermal towns to monasteries. The routes combine tangible and intangible heritage, paths to follow and points of interest linked together through networks of local communities, cultural institutions, university and research centres, and service providers. The members of the routes networks work together to create attractive destinations for visitors, offering a variety of activities and creative ways of enjoying Europe!
