Cultural routes make you discover the past, present and future of Europe at a quiet pace, they make you discover the landscapes, traditions and gastronomy of different regions and they invite you to meet other citizen on your road.
For the second year, the fair 'Crossroads of Europe' highlighted the importance of European Cultural Routes in the development of a new form of tourism. The event focused on respect for the environment, culture and populations.

These brought together stakeholders from the European tourism industry, cultural organisations and public authorities to explore the ways to work together on the promotion of cultural routes, their contribution to the diversification of tourism and to sustainability.
