Decision : CONF 208 X.A
Cultural Landscape of Fertö/Neusiedlersee (Austria/Hungary)
Property: Cultural Landscape of Fertö/Neusiedlersee
Id. N°: 772 Rev
State Party: Austria/Hungary
Criteria: C (v)
The Committee inscribed the Cultural Landscape of Fertö/Neusiedlersee on the World Heritage List under criterion (v):
Criterion (v): The Fertö/Neusiedlersee has been the meeting place of different cultures for eight millennia, and this is graphically demonstrated by its varied landscape, the result of an evolutionary and symbiotic process of human interaction with the physical environment.
The Committee encouraged the States Parties to provide within two years of inscription a revised management plan for the enlarged area resulting from the revised boundaries of the cultural landscape.
Although the site was originally nominated as a mixed site, the Committee did not inscribe Fertö/Neusiedlersee on the World Heritage List under natural criteria.
