Welcome to the European Cooperation Centre of Fortified Heritage in Berlin. Our institution promotes the capitalising of the cultural heritage of fortified monuments, like fortifications, fortified palaces, fortified castles, fortified sacral buildings and farms, as well as fortified cities in Europe.
It includes activities in the protection, profitable utilisation and effective management of the cultural heritage. As a special task ECCOFORT promotes the transnational cooperation of the fortified heritage, especially the development of culture tourism and monument marketing.
ECCOFORT is specialised for consulting and services of fortress monuments and fortress systems, to improve their monument economy, market presence and fortress tourism, as well as to organise the cooperation in networks and projects.
ECCOFORT supports the development of a transnational networking and the foundation of network organisations of the European fortified cultural heritage, as the European Fortress Tourism and Fortress Marketing Network.
ECCOFORT researches for the identification and categorisation of the fortified cultural heritage in Europe. The ECCOFORT Map is a first, unique overview of fortified monuments in Europe.
ECCOFORT is specialised for the development and management of trans-national cooperation projects, to help to finance activities with mutual benefits for the participating fortresses.
