A pioneering leisure and culture destination

EuropaCity is based on changes in our lifestyles in the digital age – expectations of immediacy and simplicity – and the need to consume more responsibly. It will bring energy-efficient cultural venues, sports, relaxation and leisure facilities, shops and housing together in one place, offering visitors a wide range of experiences in a short time. Like the digital world, EuropaCity will have a mix of free and pay-for activities as well as the friendliness digital technology lacks.
