Unescos List of world heritage - Germany

30 locations and monuments in germany are regarded as world heritage by UNESCO. The international treaty called the Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, was adopted by UNESCO in 1972. This convention is the most important international Instrument to save cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. The list consists in the moment of 788 places in 134 countries. (in the brackets is the date when it was listed)

[I am still working on this stuff and I plan to list furthermore informations directly under the regions travelguide as this would take to much space over here I guess.
If anyone wants to help, especially with more information on the sights, please feel free to do so.
And if anyone wants to make such a list as well for his/her own country please look at the hp of the UNESCO you'll find there all the information you need and you can of course copy and paste the structure i already developed (pls feel free to improve this as well)
