Europe Burnt Into Stone – Trace Search In Historic Town Cores

The European City Arbeitsgemeinschaft Historische Stadtkerne

In the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH 2018), the Working Group for Cities with Historic Town Cores in Brandenburg dedicates itself with the motto „Europe burnt into stone“ to a search for traces of historical European influences in the historical town cores.

Exhibition projects in ten and audio guides in four member-towns set the mood to go on a journey of discovery which reveals surprises, for there is a whole lot of Europe in the state of Brandenburg: Be it European influences in the oldest brick buildings of Brandenburg’s historical towns, be it constructional innovations and influences from the early modern era to the time of industrialisation. But also the usage and owner history of buildings will not be forgotten.

In 2018, the Working Group takes part in the annual campaigns of Kulturland Brandenburg (cultural land Brandenburg) for the 15th time, which runs this year under the motto „we heirs/we inherit – Europe in Brandenburg – Brandenburg in Europe“. Furthermore, manifold activities and events around the motto of the year offer a colourful program enlivening the historical town cores. It’s worth a visit!
Please note that both the exhibitions and the audio guides are offered in German only. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any help or information!
