Monument preservation

With the European Year of Monument Protection in 1975, the general recognition has prevailed that the past can only have a future if the built testimonies are preserved. The cities and places that have grown in history mean for our lives and those of future generations the possibilities for individual development, for identification. They are a piece of home.

The preservation of our cultural heritage as part of history is a task of the state. This also means that it intervenes in the tasks of monument protection in a formative way. The state lives up to its responsibility by protecting monuments from inappropriate changes that destroy the historical significance. He grants the monument owner financial contributions and advises him on the professional preservation.
