UNESCO criticizes architectural culture in Burgenland

burgenlandThe most eastern federal state of Austria, Burgenland, has not a good architectural culture. Such conclusion made a commission of the UNESCO after its investigations about the culture of building houses around the Lake Neusiedlersee.

The area around the Lake Neusiedlersee is classified as “UNESCO World Cultural Heritage”. The UNESCO now thinks more must be done to keep such a title for the region.

UNESCO shows a good example of architectural culture right over the border. Hungary has villages with fabulous preserved old structure.

Burgenland receives 2,3 mio EUR every year for the renovation of its villages. But if there would be more interest to keep and renovate historic buildings in Burgenland, the financial help could be much more.
