Starting on 1 January 2024, Netherlands has been granted Observer status with the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (EPA). On 6 October 2023, Ms Susan Lammers, General Director at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science requested the status with the EPA.

Pursuant to article 2.3 of the Committee of Ministers Resolution CM/Res(2013)66 confirming the establishment of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes, the Governing Board granted this status to Netherlands for a period of one year.

The EPA counts today 40 Member States, 2 Observer States and 47 certified Cultural Routes.
