The European Capital of Smart Tourism is a European Union initiative which recognises outstanding achievements by European cities as tourism destinations in four categories:

  • sustainability,
  • accessibility,
  • digitalisation as well as
  • cultural heritage and creativity.

It aims to promote smart tourism in the EU, network and strengthen destinations, and facilitate the exchange of best practices.

The European Capital of Smart Tourism initiative is based on a proposal from the European Parliament, which secured its funding for 2018 – 2019 through a Preparatory Action. It is implemented by the European Commission.

The competition is open to cities in the EU with a population over 100,000 inhabitants. In EU countries where no city has more than 100,000 inhabitants, the largest city is eligible to apply.

Apply via the Website by 10th May 2019 at 18:00 CET.
