EHV - Park of the former Grand Hotel Waldlust - Recultivation

Freudenstadt, Germany Others...

The Waldlust Hotel in Freudenstadt, founded in 1899, was a first choice resort of a noble society of spa guests. It stands as a historic architecture building, as a cultural heritage treasury, as a long time social meeting place in a high rank – a unique symbol of a former golden period of town development.

It is surrounded by a wide park area, which formerly served as an old style wellness and leisure time retreat for the noble high society clientele. The park had been fallen to oblivion in many years. Due to the absence of any gardening, cultivation forms and structures had gone lost.

The project consist of two parts – a practical working part which will last 6 hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends.

The project will focus on the recultivation of the former hotel park. While restoring and cultivating further parts of the historic hotel park, the old concept of Parkwald (park forest) should be regained und brought into presence. This means the clearing of small or middle aged trees and plants that are not typically for the park as well as the excavation of garden structures with century old origin currently covered by leaves.

In addition, the reconstruction of a historic path, which has been started in the previous project will be continued. Finally, a sand stone wall that accompanies the main access path to the former hotel will be repaired.

EHV - Amantia Archaeological Park - Excavations and Conservation of Tombs

Albania Archeological expeditions

The ancient city of Amantia has been one of the most important cities of South Illyria. The ancient city ruins of the fortification of the Acropolis, the Ancient Stadium, the Early Christian Basilica and the Temple of Aphrodite as well as remains of other buildings have been preserved.

The trait of Amantia and one of its most attractive elements is the necropolis, rich in monumental tombs, dating back to the late 4th century BC. Three specimens of this type of tombs can be found here, among which the most representative is the so called the Jew's Tomb.

Due to their monumental construction and rich inventory, these graves have become the object of theft, illegal excavations and vandalism, starting from antiquity to nowadays.

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part. The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

The project aims to rehabilitation, archaeological rescue excavation and documentation of damaged funerary structures in the North-Eastern area of the necropolis. The intervention will consist of the removal of soil caused by the clandestine digging activities, the opening of a survey of the archaeological structures and their documentation.

Due to the violation of the Jew's Tomb, some of its blocks collapsed. During the project, the vegetation will be removed, the harm will be cleaned up and the architectural elements will be returned to their original places.

Besides the interventions in the monuments, paths to the tombs will be created. At the end of the interventions, the entire itinerary will be equipped with orientation and explanatory tables.

EHV - Benedictine Abbey - Conservation and Restoration

Kraków, Poland Others...

The Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec is the oldest monastery in Poland, with almost one thousand years of history. Over the ages, it went through periods of prosperity and decline, until its dissolution in 1816 and re-opening in 1939. Today, rebuilt from ruins, it is open to guests wishing to experience the living Benedictine tradition.

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part.

The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

The volunteering project at Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec is an opportunity to be in close touch with cultural heritage – the volunteers will have the chance to live and work for two weeks in a 1.000 years old monastery.

The volunteers will be engaged in supporting the actual conservation of marble decoration in the church at Tyniec Abbey. The programme is designed to let the whole group be closely involved into the conservation process at all levels that are possible for non-professionals – cataloguing, photographic documentation, measuring, drawing, reconnaissance and documentation of the state of preservation, objects' cleaning from surface dirt – such as wax, paint or plaster splashes, removing of weathered surface from marble decorations, polishing and marble surface preservation.

Depending on the time the conservatory works may be supplemented with conservation and restoration of wooden sculptures from the church.

The conservation activities will be preceded by the theoretical introduction on history, history of art as well as conservation and restoration techniques.

Except field works the volunteers will be asked to prepare a short presentation of issues in cultural heritage current in their countries. During their free time the volunteers will have opportunities to visit monuments and sites iconic for the cultural heritage of Kraków and Lesser Poland.

EHV - Former Grand Hotel Waldlust and Marksburg Castle

Freudenstadt, Germany Others...

The Waldlust Hotel in Freudenstadt, founded in 1899, was a first choice resort of a noble society of spa guests. It stands as a historic architecture building, as a cultural heritage treasury, as a long time social meeting place in a high rank – a unique symbol of a former golden period of town development. Today the old palace with its impressive size and scenery and its glorious history offers us a review back to a golden era, almost unimaginable for such a small town deeply embedded in the Black Forest woods.

The Upper Middle Rhine Valley, is an outstanding organic cultural landscape and a dominant of the Rhine scenery is Marksburg Castle – the only medieval stronghold on the hills which has never been destroyed, a rare example of history virtually undisturbed by the march of time.

The project consist of two parts – a practical working part which will last 6 hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends.

In the ground floor of the Grand Hotel Waldlust a legendary night club Zwitscherstube had its place. The aim of the project is to search for the remains of the original situation and basing on that to design a new concept for the interior of this part of the house which will orientate as much as possible on the historic situation. The works will include the abolishment of recent conversions and the clearance of new dividing walls, wallpapers and other elements. Under the guidance of a local architect an interior design concept will be established and the therefore needed furniture which is currently stored in other parts of the Waldlust will be prepared.

The second part of the project is dedicated to the Marksburg Castle. During archaeological excavations carried out on the plateau in-between the Romanesque Palace and the Small Battery, the foundation walls of a Romanesque chapel that had been turned down in 1588, were uncovered. After the excavations had been completed, the findings were again backfilled in order to preserve them. In order to make the former chapel more comprehensible for visitors, the outline of the former chapel shall be marked in the ground with flagstones. In addition, the volunteers will work in the area of the Outer Bailey, which is – together with the located bastion – supposed to be opened for visitors of the castle. Therefore the area shall be cleared of undergrowth such as thistles, blackberry bushes and ivy, which have grown rampant along the escarpment. In doing so, this part of the castle will be more accessible and comprehensible in its function as a defensive zone.

EHV - Classical Weimar - Historic Gardens and Parks

Weimar, Germany Others...

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries the small town of Weimar in Thuringia saw a remarkable cultural flowering. Enlightened ducal patronage attracted many leading German writers, composers and artists to the town, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller and Franz Liszt, thus making Weimar the cultural centre of Europe at that time. This development is reflected in the high quality of many of the buildings and parks in the surrounding area.

The Classical Weimar was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998 and comprises twelve individual buildings and ensembles: Weimar’s City Castle, the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, Goethe’s and Schiller’s residences, the Town Church, the Ducal Vault with the Historic Cemetery and many others.

The project consist of two parts – a practical working part which will last 6 hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends.

The practical part usually consists of two elements – a park restoration part on one hand and a maintenance part on the other hand. Due to a rotating system the volunteers have the opportunity to get to know during the project both fields.

The restoration part will take place at the so called "kitchen garden" at the Southern edge of Belvedere Park that had been arranged in the 19th century as a combined fruit, vegetable and flower garden. The dry stone walls as the formative element of the garden are ruinous and shall be protected against progressive decay. Since the dry stone walls are an important habitat for wild bees and other rare insects the restoration needs to be carried out extremely carefully. Plants that damage the walls will be carefully taken away, the walls will be documented, the stones that had fallen down over decades will be collected, their original places determined, smaller areas will be restored and the cap stones will be placed back. The works will be guided by a bricklayer specialised on historic walls and traditional techniques that will provide during the study part more theoretical knowledge in this field.

Another part of the group will carry out maintenance works in other parks and gardens of the site, thus supporting Weimar Classic Foundation, the responsible site management, in works that can be undertaken only manually, such as cutting long-grass meadows on slopes. At the same time the volunteers will gain a detailed knowledge about the different parks and gardens of the World Heritage site and the challenges in managing them.

The educational part of the project will inform the volunteers about the background of the project, provide knowledge about historical garden and park architecture, traditional gardening and other related topics and will include lectures and guided tours about Classical Weimar as well as excursions to related heritage sites. The opportunity of free entrance to museums and exhibitions will enable in addition individual study.

EHV - Ivanic Grad - Mapping and documentation of industrial heritage

Croatia Others...

Ivanić-Grad is located forty kilometres east of Zagreb and has around 14,000 inhabitants. It is part of the Zagreb County and geographically belongs to the Western Moslavina. The industrial heritage of the city can be traced throughout the 20th century. In the first half of the 20th century, the industry consisted mostly of mills, sawdust, alcoholic beverage and brick factories. Thanks to the electric power plant, Ivanić-Grad had electric power already in 1913. Rich deposits of oil and natural gas, discovered in the period after World War II in the fields and forest areas of the rural hinterland of the historic settlements of Križ, Kloštar Ivanić and Ivanić-Grad were one of the main reasons for significant changes in the economic and social structure of the population.

The basis of its economy is nowadays apart of the oil, gas and chemical industry and metal processing also agriculture and livestock. Much of the industrial heritage is not documented or valorised.

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part. The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

The International workshop "Mapping and Documentation of Industrial Heritage in Ivanić-Grad" will consist of material research in archives, identification of relevant industrial heritage monuments, photographic documentation production and creation of a website as a final product.

The aim is to make industrial heritage more visible and accessible by providing based on research coherent information about these monuments as well as to contribute to its valorisation through photo documentation and website.

In addition, in order to involve the local population and make use of their knowledge, interviews with people who worked in these companies will be conducted to get a more comprehensive overview of how the industry has influenced everyday life in Ivanić-Grad and to use the process of storytelling to raise awareness.

Given that the industrial heritage in Ivanić-Grad is not documented, the main objective of this project is to provide a systematic overview of industry development and to contribute to the awareness of the local community about the importance of preserving industrial heritage. The results of the workshop will be the basis for the future work towards its sustainable management.

EHV - Tematín Castle - Traditional stone techniques

Slovakia Others...

Tematín Castle is situated on a side ridge of the Považský Inovec mountain range at an altitude of 605 above the sea level. It was part of the chain of border castles and it was built far from any settlements and is now considered one of the least accessible castles in Slovakia.

As to its early history, archaeological research indicates that the first brick buildings of the castle were built around the year 1250. It began losing its renown of unconquerable fortress towards the end of the 18th century, since the nobility were at that time building more luxurious and more comfortable mansions in the lowlands.

As of the year 2007, the castle has remained in the care of the Tematín Castle Association. With the help of volunteers and staff, its members explore and preserve the castle. The ambition is to maintain the atmosphere of the castle as part of the beautiful countryside without allowing any massive interferences or new constructions.

The project will be very intensive and consist of two parts – a practical working part and a study part. The practical working part, which will be at different parts of the site, will last six hours per day. In the evenings and during the weekend, educational and cultural activities will take place.

The project will focus on traditional technologies of stone and brick masonry.

The preservation works will be carried out directly at the historic walls and vaults of the medieval buildings which have been rebuilt and changed in Renaissance style, where the stone – and at vaults the brick – are the dominant building materials. Under the supervision of experts and skilled craftsmen in the field of cultural heritage restoration the volunteers will take part in the whole process, from lime preparation and lime burning, mortar mixing and stone selection up to stone laying technology in stonework. Pointing of historic masonry will be part of masonry work, too.

In addition, the participants will be involved in the process of preserving historic plasters, stabilizing sandstone architectural elements and traditional carpentry.

The practical work will be prepared, preceded and complemented by theoretical instruction.

During the weekend, a trip will take place to the surrounding castles in order to know the conservation practices of various surrounding castles.

EHV - Erxleben Castle - Training Course - Restoration of plasters and colored surfaces

Erxleben, Germany Others...

Erxleben Castle is an originally mediaeval mooted castle that was built by the Alvensleben family which lived there till 1945. Afterwards it was used as a technical school, and since 1990 it had been out of use.

EHV - Gantikow Manor - Traditional Wood Construction Techniques

Kyritz, Germany Others...

Gantikow Manor is situated hundred kilometres north of Berlin. The manor is surrounded by a nice village with a medieval church and a lake. The building is a picturing example of a former baroque building which has been changed in the late 19th century in neo-baroque style. Over centuries, the houses belonged to the Earls von Platen, which sold it in 1872 to a civil family which started soon, in 1877, with the modernisation of the house and kept it in their ownership till 1945. After World War II, the house was first used as a refugee shelter and after that the community used the house as a village centre, hosting the community office, the local store, the school, the kindergarten, the doctor's room, the kitchen of the agricultural cooperative and several apartments. Since around ten years it is used as a seminar house, mainly by non-profit organisations, youth initiatives and universities. The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden with old trees which originally reached up to the lake.

The manor has a comparable small annex which remains from the original Baroque building. Its current roof construction had been erected in the first half of the 20th century, but it was badly designed and got broken in the meantime. Originally, it was planned to replace only the broken parts of the construction, but when opening the ceiling it became obvious that the beams had been made from cottonwood which is not appropriate material for roof construction. Therefore, a new roof construction will be erected which follows the shape of the original one. Finally, the construction will be reroofed. The works will be lead by a master of carpentry who has additional education as “Restorer in Handicraft”. Within the framework of the educational part other historic roof constructions in the village and the region – in the manor house itself, the village church and in the town nearby – will be studied and discussed.
