Apply for monument funding


If you - or your tenant - intend to carry out conversion measures on your monument, or if the monument has to be removed for compelling reasons, please contact the monument protection authority responsible for you in good time. There you will be told what steps are necessary to get the necessary approval. This usually saves you not only time and money, but also unnecessary trouble; because in early discussions with the competent authorities, it is usually possible to find a sensible solution by weighing up all interests.

If a building permit is required for the measure you intend to take, the monument law examination is also carried out as part of the building permit procedure.

Which documents you have to attach to the application, please clarify in a conversation with the monument protection authority responsible for you.

The application for approval must be submitted in writing to the competent monument protection authority. As a rule, the lower monument protection authorities of the district-free cities and districts are responsible for monument protection.

Only if the demolition of a monument should be unavoidable, a separate application for approval must be submitted to the responsible Upper Monument Protection Authority, the State Administration Office/Monument Protection Department, before submitting the building application. Upon request, it also grants grants for the preservation of cultural monuments.

Cultural monuments within the meaning of the Monument Protection Act are:

  • architectural monuments,
  • Monument areas,
  • archaeological cultural monuments,
  • archaeological area monuments,
  • movable cultural monuments
  • Small monuments.

In the preservation and restoration of your monument, you can receive financial support on the one hand through tax relief and on the other hand through subsidies from the public sector.
