Stras­bourg - Luxem­bourg - Brussels

European Route of Demo­cracy
- A travel guide -

In progress:

A cultural itin­er­­ary guide describ­ing the "European Route of Demo­cracy" from Stras­­bourg (legis­lat­ive) via Luxem­­bourg (judicial) to Brussels (exec­ut­ive). Included are the cities of Saar­brücken, Metz, Trier, Aachen and Maastricht. The focus is on inter­­est­ing places and sights along this route, but espe­­cially on the descrip­­tion of the European refer­­ence of histor­ical places and events as well as the European insti­tu­­tions estab­l­ished today, which are connec­ted by this unique "European Route". The planned route lies in the heart of Europe, passes through border regions of 5 coun­­tries and is about 880 km long. The travel guide will be avail­able as a print edition in book­shops and also as an e-book.

Europe is created through encoun­­ters, cross-border mobility and inter­­cul­tural exchange between people in the border regions and beyond. The project should contrib­ute to making the European idea and the European polit­ical culture "locally" tangible (exper­­i­ence­­able).

The asso­ci­ation Via Demo­cra­tia Europa e. V. develops the project details, takes care of the acquis­i­tion of both private and public partners, is the project promoter for the real­isa­tion and supports the public rela­tions work of the "European Road of Demo­cracy". The asso­ci­ation receives active support from the Centre européen Robert Schuman in Scy-Chazelles near Metz (CERS). The CERS is also a partner of the asso­ci­ation in the project "European Road Network" (
