F. CULTURAL TOURISM

November 11, 2021, 10 am - 1 pm, Vinothek

Two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and numerous intangible cultural heritages, sacred and spiritual art, the European Capital of Culture 2025 as well as top-class cultural institutions such as orchestras and museums of international reputation: Saxony is the number one cultural destination. With the heritage from over 1000 years of cultural history, combined with modern artistic zeitgeist and visionary ideas, Saxony receives appreciation on the international stage. Whether in Dresden, Leipzig, Chemnitz or their little sisters, the Saxon city beauties – combined with the scenic resources of the Free State of Saxony, they form the resonating space for culture-loving people from all over the world. They are points of interest and as such provide impetus for transnational exchange. The Tourismus Marketing Society Sachsen offers inspiration.

Future of cultural tourism

Prof. Dr. Hartmut Rein
University for Sustainable Development Eberswalde (HNEE), Professor for Sustainable Destination Management
 
The future of cultural tourism is currently difficult to predict. Both culture and travel require free people and open societies. Increasing restrictions nationally and worldwide in course of pandemic control are limiting both. Principles of the rule of law are faltering in the wake of the corona crisis. A return to our human rights and the „Universal Declaration of Human Rights“ is urgently needed in order to enable free practise of culture and travel for all „United in Diversity“.

Culture as a travel magnet. Fresh ideas from Dresden and St. Petersburg

Corinne Miseer
Dresden Marketing GmbH, Managing Director with Special Guest from St. Petersburg

Dresden and St. Petersburg have been twinned for 50 years; both are cultural metropolises rich in tradition that share their first-class offerings with many people from all over the world. But what does a cultural metropolis have to offer today, how does it have to communicate in order to be interesting for the younger, digital generation? Both speakers will report on current projects and developments that have successfully heralded the future of cultural tourism in their cities, such as the sensational reopening of the permanent multimedia presentation ZwingerXperience in Dresden.

Sacral journeys in the triangle of three countries

Dr. Peter Knüvener
Director of the Städtische Museen Zittau
 
The monuments of the Via Sacra constitute a network of sacral treasures in the border triangle of Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. The eventful history of this region causes an incomparable diversity: There are ancient monasteries with still existing convents, monuments of ecumenical Christianity from the Reformation, the center of a global religious community as well as high-ranking evidence of the Bohemian Baroque, medieval art and Scandinavian church architecture.
