Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The President of the State Office for the Preservation of Monuments in Hesse, Markus Harzenetter, has described monuments as important resources for defining one's own location. The "Open Monument Day" invites you to "dive deep into the past and have experts explain how and for what reasons we preserve traces of the past," said Harzenetter at the request of the German Press Agency in Wiesbaden.
The "Day of the Open Monument" takes place every year on the second Sunday in September. The program is free of charge and is organized by the German Foundation for Monument Protection. This year, for the 30th time, up to 8,000 properties in around 2,500 towns and communities will open their doors nationwide. Thousands of events are also supplemented by digital formats.
