Participate in this photo contest to celebrate World Heritage in Germany #WeltErbeVerbindet

Next June 6, Germany celebrates their UNESCO World Heritage places, and we can be part of it in the contest #WelterbeVerbindet. 

In 2021, under the motto "Solidarity and Dialogue", the 46 World Heritage sites in Germany join forces to offer a glimpse behind the scenes, allowing them to experience the history of humankind and the wonders of nature. 

If you have visited some World Heritage Places in Germany or you live close to one of them, show with a photo how the feeling of community is lived there. They are looking for pictures that show moments of cohesion, solidarity, and exchange in the country's 46 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

What should you do?

  1. Upload a photo of yourself and a World Heritage site in Germany by June 6, 2021, at  
  2. Choose a photo frame. 
  3. Share your photo under the hashtag #WelterbeVerbindet via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. 

There are prizes! 

The three most original photos will win a bag full of lots of colourful giveaways from UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany.

Since 2005, every year, on the first Sunday in June, Germany commemorate its World Heritage Places, and each one of the 46 sites prepares special events or activities to join this day. Discover the 46 German World Heritage sites and their events for the 2021 celebration here:
