Berlin (dpa) - Chemnitz is to represent Germany as European Capital of Culture 2025. A recommendation to this effect for the Saxon city was announced by the European selection panel in Berlin on Wednesday.

Chemnitz wants to "make visible all those people and places that you don't see, and thus also a Chemnitz that - as yet - no one in Europe has on their radar," according to the application team. Cultural means are to be used to overcome divisions.
