Interreg5a project “Glück Auf Welterbe!” (Welcome to World Heritage)

Project duration: 09/11/2015 to 30/09/2021

What’s behind the project title?

Working alongside project partners Tourismusverband Erzgebirge e. V. and Montanregion Krušné hořy - Erzgebirge o.p.s., the aim is to raise awareness among different target groups of the importance of the Erzgebirge Mining Region as a globally unique industrial cultural landscape. As a cross-border project, the Mining Cultural Landscape can then be marketed nationally and internationally, thus elevating the subject of mining, with its tangible and intangible aspects, to a higher quality level. The European Union is supporting this project by providing up to 85% of funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

What are the aims of the project?

  • To conduct joint German-Czech presentation measures and public relations activities

  • To raise global awareness of the EMR as a unique, cross-border cultural landscape

  • To expand networking in the (World Heritage) EMR by developing an infrastructure to network/connect cultural assets (World Heritage component parts) on both sides of the border

  • To advise and support the EMR on its nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

  • To strengthen regional awareness about, and the sense of identity stemming from, the EMR on the Czech and German sides

  • To market the EMR holistically with high-quality measures (as a future World Heritage site)

Among other things, this website was created as part of the project; it is constantly being developed and updated to meet current requirements.
