THE HANSA has been a certified Cultural Route of the Council of Europe since 1991.

The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe are an invitation to travel and to discover the rich and diverse heritage of Europe by bringing people and places together in networks of shared history and heritage. They put into practice the values of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and mutual exchanges across borders.

The Cultural Routes put into practice the values of the Council of Europe:

  • human rights,
  • cultural democracy,
  • cultural diversity and identity and
  • mutual exchanges across borders in space and time.

Through its programme, the Council of Europe offers a model for transnational cultural and tourism management and allows synergies between national, regional and local authorities and a wide range of associations and socio-economic actors.
