Management Plan

 © Rainer Cordes

A management plan for a world heritage site is a regulatory framework in which the future handling and long-term development of the site is laid down to insure protection, conservation, sustainable use and development. Since the 1st of February 2005, a management plan is required of an inscribed property.

Main elements of a management plan are the following:

  • Measurements of protection by legislation, other regulations, charters and contracts
  • Definition of borders for the effective protection
  • Buffer zones
  • Administrative systems
  • Sustainable use and development. 

The description of the outstanding universal value, OUV, of a world heritage site and the statement of its authenticity and integrity are placed in front of its management plan.

Boundaries of the nominated property and buffer zone

The boundary of component part 1 of the nominated property includes all structural, architectural, park and nature elements related to their nucleus, the Schwerin Castle built on an island, such as the Court gardens and functional buildings, Court Museum and Theatre, Churches, Military Complex and Stables, Grand Ducal Station, princely palaces, ministerial,  bourgeois villas and the station .  The boundary of component part 2 of the nominated property runs along the shore of Kaninchenwerder in the Lake Schwerin as second island important for the layout of the residence ensemble.

The boundary of the buffer zone includes both component parts and the interior Lake of Schwerin up to its shores. The boundaries of the buffer zone follow the natural ridges of the terminal moraine, which is surrounding the inner lake. The northern part of the boundary of the buffer zone runs along the lake up to the point where the Castle can still be seen from the western shoreline.

In May 2017, the advisory board for the Schwerin World Heritage application has decided to enlarge the proposed property. The advisory board installed by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Mecklenburg – Western Pomerania has added the area of the Pfaffenteich due to its functional buildings of the Schwerin residence. Furthermore, the council has decided to combine the exclaves in a single area.

 

Area of the application for the German tentative list: 140 ha

Multiple visual relationships are fundamental to a Romantic cultural landscape: Ever new surprising viewpoints and elements lurking the spectator further into the landscape only to open more views of the quaint and picturesque nature.
