  • redesigned or otherwise altered in its inventory,
  • its appearance is not only temporarily impaired (e.g. by advertising facilities),

The permit can be granted subject to conditions, e.g. the management of the measure can be ordered by an expert.

The responsibility lies with the lower monument protection authority or the commissioner for the archaeological preservation of monuments in the district or municipality, which is responsible for the task of the lower building supervisory authority.

  • the documents required for the assessment
