Field-of-view study Residence ensemble Schwerin

The Residence Ensemble Schwerin – Cultural Landscape of Romantic Historicism was included in the German Tentative List in 2014. The nomination application for the UNESCO World Heritage site is currently under preparation. At the same time, there are plans to build wind turbines with a height of up to 200 meters in the Schwerin environment. More than twenty potentials for wind energy have been defined.

In this context, the offices of michael kloos planning and heritage consultancy and v-cube GbR were commissioned by the state capital of Schwerin in November 2015 to carry out an expert evaluation of the potential impacts of the plans on relevant visual corridors in and around the potential World Heritage property. It was the aim of study to document the most significant view relationships, to assess possible affects on the potential Outstanding Universal Value of the nominated site as well as to compare recommendations for the further nomination process.
