The Heritage Day - in Berlin called "Day of the open Monument" - takes place every year in September and is a Europe-wide event. Its aim is to sensitize people for the meaning of cultural heritage and to awaken their interest for the care and preservation of ancient monuments. The motto of the Heritage Day 2017 is "Power and Glory".
At the "Day of the open Monument" in Berlin monument conservators invite to guided tours on, at and in ancient monuments, buildings and places which normally are not accessible for visitors. While talking about but also showing their day-to-day work the experts make it tangible to visitors and also strengthen people's perception of cultural sites. Other experts, such as archeologists and craftsmen demonstrate certain work techniques and lead the visitors' eye to details which would normally remain hidden.
