The Rammelsberg as World Cultural Heritage

In 1972 the UNESCO adopted the international convention concerning the protection of the world cultural and natural heritage, the so-called World Heritage Convention. In it around 170 signing nations pledged themselves to preserve cultural and natural heritage sites in their jurisdictional areas “in existence and value”.

In December 1992 the former ore mines of Rammelsberg and the historic town of Goslar were placed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO and since then have been evaluated as a cultural heritage for all humanity.

With the Rammelsberg and Old Town of Goslar this predicate was given, for the first time in the world, to an entire cultural landscape. In addition, for the first time in Germany an industrial monument was entered on the World Heritage List by the UNESCO. Prerequisite for this was the evaluation of the Rammelsberg as a unique example of industrial culture.
