29 October 2021
Conference in Würzburg:
"The Würzburg Residence. From Rebuilding to UNESCO World Heritage Site"

2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the Würzburg Residence's inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 1981, the rebuilding of the Residence was also almost completed with great professional effort. After forty years of UNESCO World Heritage status, it seems appropriate to look back: What has the UNESCO World Heritage designation achieved? What experience has been gained from the long rebuilding phase in dealing with World Heritage sites? What changes in planning and practice have occurred during these phases of rebuilding? And - what challenges does the Residence face today?
Please note: The conference will be in German only!
