Abstract (in English)

Experience learns that very often the best way to preserve a historical building is to give it an active (re)use. However, it is also observed that this is only true if the conditions for (re)use are controlled to a certain extent. Parameters of control are then humidity, temperature and especially the changes of humidity and temperature. With respect to the 18th century fortification Tenaille von Fersen , Suomenlinna , Finland (included in the UNESCO World Heritage list) the conditions of the building can be described as follows: the walls and vaults are water – logged and salt contaminated. The building was unused and unheated for a long period of time. Part of the building is nowadays used for several types of activities. Extension of the reuse of the fortification is foreseen in a near future.
