Cistercian Landscapes

Project 2019-21 “Cisterscapes – Cistercian landscapes connecting Europe”

At the moment we are preparing a transnational cooperation project (LEADER TNC) with 18 partners in six countries. Project start is supposed to be in autumn 2019. The goal is the joint application for the European Heritage Label for Cistercian landscapes in order to point out their high significance in European history.

Project 2018 “Diversity in unity: Cistercian Landscapes in Central Europe”

The project 2018 was a “Sharing Heritage” project in the context of the European Year of Cultural Heritage. The project which united 6 monasteries and their historical cultural landscapes was implemented by the county of Bamberg (Landkreis Bamberg) and the Bavarian State Office for Monument Protection (Bayerisches Landesamt für Denkmalpflege). It was sponsored by the Federal Republic of Germany/ Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media and by the LEADER program of the the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and the bavarian State Ministry of food, agriculture and forestry.
With its exhibitions and guided tours in Austria, Czech Republic, France andGermany the project reached more than 32.000 people.
