Welcome to the

European Cities of the Reformation!

The “European Cities of the Reformation” is a project run by the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe – CPCE – to strengthen the partnerships between the European churches and their towns and cities as they celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

The scheme promotes the vibrant interaction of art, culture and spirituality and encourages historical adventures and tourism in the towns and cities where the Reformation evolved.

The CPCE awards participating towns and cities:

  • the title “European City of the Reformation” and right to use the official emblem
  • joint media campaigns to publicise the full range of activities
