Management Plan for the UNESCO World Heritage Site – Wismar Altstadt
The Hanseatic Town of Wismar submitted its original management plan for the future world heritage site as part of its application for entry in the World Heritage List. This document – ratified by the town's legislative assembly, the Bürgerschaft, in December 2000 – has formed the guidelines for conduct within the World Heritage site since then.
Monitoring has taken place annually since Wismar's addition to the World Heritage List for Humanity in 2002.
