Nyborg - a Big Step Closer to the World Heritage List

26. October 2018 | Nyborg Castle

The Municipality of Nyborg and the Museums of Eastern Funen have worked with singular purpose since 2011 to make Nyborg Castle and the Town of Nyborg a worthy candidate for UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The Agency for Culture and Palaces’ notice of recognition is received, confirming that Nyborg Castle and town is now a worthy candidate.

The Agency for Culture and Palaces has now evaluated several applications for the Danish admission list for UNESCO’s World Heritage List, the so-called Tentative List.

The agency has attached importance to the applicants’ likelihood of achieving final acceptance to UNESCO’s World Heritage List of the world’s irreplaceable natural and cultural heritage sites. Only very few applicants made the Tentative List in the first round, while a few others, including Nyborg, have been chosen by the Agency for Culture and Palaces for further adaptation, with the goal of soon being placed on the Tentative List. In the case of Nyborg, one of the goals of further adaptation will be to make the connection between the history of the town and castle and their physical expression clearer. The agency has informed the Municipality of Nyborg and the Museums of Eastern Funen that they want to begin discussions after the summer holiday on how best to carry out, develop and target the application. The final application to UNESCO will, according to plan, be sent in 2021.
