Heritage protection

Cologne District Council awarded the entire former National Socialist “Ordensburg” heritage site status, according to North Rhine-Westphalia’s legal regulations for the protection of cultural heritage, due to it being one of the largest legacies of National Socialism. The objective is to preserve the whole listed building stock.

An open-minded and, at the same time, responsible management of the heritage site is therefore of great importance. Future uses should be based on reasoned ideas and respect the heritage status.
