Monument protection – Videos
Monument protection (see Wikipedia) has the goal of permanently preserving monuments as historical cultural assets and contemporary witnesses of past eras. As a sovereign task of the state, monument protection pursues the goal of permanently preserving all monuments, as far as possible in their original form. This ensures that the original charm is preserved even after the restoration.
Monuments include memorials and statues, gardens and parks, excavations, industry and technology, memorials and memorials, public buildings, sacred buildings, palaces and castles, and residential buildings and settlements.
The concept of a monument goes far beyond what is commonly referred to as an art monument and includes objects that can generally bear witness to our (cultural) history. Even at first glance small or inconspicuous things can pass on history and therefore be worthy of protection. Thus, the spectrum ranges from churches to crossroads, from castles to city walls, from town halls to schools, from cemeteries to individual tombs, from castles to workers’ houses, from parks to Street avenues, from entire workers’ housing estates to individual residential and commercial buildings.
Soil monuments can be the remains of individual houses, for example, but also the remains of wells, production facilities, water pipes, artificial waters, traffic systems and cultic sites.
