Why World Heritage?

Seite ausdrucken

KurhausWith World Culture Heritage the UNESCO wants to protect cultural and natural monuments. For them it isn’t a matter of touristic or economic benefit, but it is about the protection of the good which they consider to be an important cultural heritage of mankind. Nevertheless the award of this title normally has a positive effect on the respective town, initiates development processes or promotes them. Above all the title “World Culture Heritage Site” has internationally a positive effect on the perception of the respective town. The town conversely commits to protect its good in a particular way. The title does not create its own right in fact, however a town with a recognized World Culture Heritage Site must protect this good in a particular way and conserve it for the future.
