Welcome to www.coupDefouet.eu, the Art Nouveau European Route website. Here you will find the most complete information on Art Nouveau heritage in Europe and worldwide. Our website has been organised according to our city and institutional members. Search for them by alphabetical order to learn more about the Art Nouveau heritage of any particular city or institution, read their news and activity calendar updates, look at their photo gallery or click onto their own heritage or tourist information websites.
If you wish to read past issues of our coupDefouet magazine, feel free to download a PDF version.
Our contents are being continuously updated, so come back soon to continue on a fascinating discovery tour through Art Nouveau!
The Art Nouveau European Route is a non-profit association of local governments and non-governmental institutions that have joined together in a collective commitment to develop useful and efficient mechanisms for the international promotion and protection of Art Nouveau heritage.
The Route also seeks to foster communication and exchange between its members to share their experiences in the restoration of monuments, public awareness programmes, fundraising strategies and the development of sustainable tourism.
The Route publishes the coupDefouet magazine, with contents contributed selflessly by its members. It has also published the Art Nouveau European Route catalogue, a brief panorama of the best Art Nouveau heritage.
The European Route was established in the year 2000 during its first Plenary Meeting in Barcelona, which was attended by representatives of 46 municipalities and 33 other institutions (museums, foundations, private companies…), and it has been growing steadily since then.
