Abstract (in English)

Europe’s Cultural Heritage is an essential part of our common European as well as Local identity. Its preservation and promotion is our permanent task. Following the slogan “Sharing heritage”, all Europeans are invited within the upcoming «European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) 2018» to discover Europe’s Cultural Heritage and to experience their own cultural background. The ECHY 2018 included all forms of Cultural Heritage! Our common Europe with its national characteristics and State sovereignties is indispensable for the peace and prosperity on the continent, but also for the values that constitute Europe. These are reflected at best in our various local, regional, national and European buildings, monuments and archaeological sites. With EYCH 2018 and sharing our Cultural Heritage, we want - to regain us as Europeans, - actively to promote ourselves to understand us better, - to understand "the others", - to feel comfortable again and - finally to feel well at home. “Patria est, ubicumque est bene”! The protection and care of our Cultural Heritage is a task on behalf of society that transcends boundaries of states and nations. In Europe at least, we share a common past and a common heritage. However, German Conservation and Protection laws and the organisation of Conservation and its administrations differ from these in other European countries and indeed in most countries in the world quite intensively. The analyses and comparisons refer to all German monument protection laws and are designed to provide an overview of the legal situation in Germany!
