With the inscription Regensburg Old Town on the World Heritage List in 2006, the Regensburg City Council agreed to raise awareness about its values to the largest possible public. The project site of the Visitor Centre in the old Salt Barn represents a model location for attracting visitors and presenting the World Heritage city. The building itself as well as the scientific concept support the goal of promoting and educating about Regensburg and its World Heritage status.
Opened in May 2011, the Visitor Centre serves multiple uses at the local level and has been integrated into schools’ activities and tourist routes.
Regensburg World Heritage Visitors Centre (about the project):
The agency co-operated with the Regensburg City Council in 2008 – 2011 during the implementation of the EU project HerO (Heritage as Opportunity). Regensburg City was the leading partner of the project.
