How to become a member?

We are very pleased that you are interested in becoming a member of the European Federation of Napoleonic Cities. A warm welcome to you. Please find here some information about the European Federation of Napoleonic Cities.

The Federation is an association of cities. A member city can mandate a third organisation to represent a city. Formally we expect the decision of the administration, i.e. the mayor, of a city to join the federation. For your information please consult our membership agreement.

The annual fee of a membership in the Federation is based on the number of inhabitants of a city which seems to us a fair way to acknowledge the different financial situations of cities. Please consult the scheme for our annual fees.

The Federation invites all public and private players in the field of cultural tourism, art, education and all enterprises that want to share the popularity of a great myth to join us in developing new and exciting European projects. The designation “European Cultural Route” takes our imagination on a journey of discovery through the Old Continent, it is a way to reach out to European citizens and, with them, learn about and explore what has helped forge our contemporary identity.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any more information: contact@napoleoncities.eu.

Why become a member?

With the label European Cultural Route the Council of Europe promotes cooperation and exchange in the fields of culture, education and tourism. The 39 European Cultural Routes on the continent are serving interculturalism between the peoples of Europe.

Our Cultural Route "Destination Napoleon" is a vector for cultural, economic and social development on the scale of a continent. It is part of the structures and initiatives supported by the cities. Destination Napoleon pools expertise and opportunities offered by the network of its cities. It encourages the development of innovative initiatives especially by developing specific models of methodologies and tools as the D-Lab (Digital technology Laboratory for Cultural Routes) and an interactive map.

The valorization of the heritage that the route Destination Napoleon provides in concert with all the cities of its network produces effects of economic and cultural nature, notably through tourism: For example by creating signposted circuits or ready to use products, that the Federation will promote at major European trade fairs and by its presence at major media, sporting or cultural events.

All the cities in our Federation benefit from the European networking within the federation. It is the most visible advantage for member cities: entrance to European projects, funds and exchange of best practice.
