Germany to celebrate UNESCO World Heritage day tomorrow

Published on : Saturday, June 6, 2015

UnescoSince 2005 a special festival has taken place in honour of Germany’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, of which there are now 39. The UNESCO World Heritage Day raises awareness of Germany’s rich cultural heritage with a host of informative and entertaining activities.
These places of outstanding historical or natural interest will be opening their doors to the public tomorrow.
The main event is organised by a different World Heritage site every year.


Importantly, the World Heritage Day is a forum for communication with and between local people, to whom ‘their World Heritage site’ is a crucial cultural and historical point of reference. Central target groups for this yearly event are children and teenagers. Educational and age-based activities are offered and aim at triggering young people’s interest in heritage and its conservation.

The underlying idea of such encounter is to make the World Heritage tangible to habitants and visitors and to strengthen people’s perception of their culture as a component of humanity’s manifold heritage. Each World Heritage site is part of the fascinating landscape of cultural diversity and as such a place to learn intercultural understanding.

The World Heritage Day is an initiative by the German Commission for UNESCO and the German UNESCO World Heritage Sites Association (UNESCO-Welterbestätten Deutschland e.V.).
