Abstract (in English)

The safeguarding of the spirit of place depends on the connection between people and their heritage. Maintenance and monitored based preventive preservation involves more people and local craftsmen in the process. The paper investigates some examples of different implementations of maintenance services in Europe according to the Dutch model of Monumentenwacht, namely in Belgium, in Denmark and in Hungary. Their role as stimulator of enhancement of traditional crafts is examined, as they are considered to contribute to preservation of local intangible heritage and to community involvement. The role of such organisations as (independent) supporters to heritage owners or site managers is highlighted.
