Both cities gained the EU’s nod after a European Jury meeting in Brussels on October 26, 2021 deliberated on the nominated cities, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) reported.


The two winners will receive their official award at the Award Ceremony during the European Tourism Forum gala dinner on November 16, 2021, an event co-organized by the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU together with the European Commission.



In total, 30 cities from across 16 countries competed, out of which seven shortlisted cities were invited to present their candidatures in front of the European Jury.


Bordeaux and Valencia impressed the European Jury not only with their remarkable achievements across all four categories of the competition, the program of activities they intend to execute during 2022, as well as their capacity to act as a role model for other cities.
