Anyone can inspect the list of monuments or obtain information about the contents of the list in writing.
The entry of an architectural or ground monument in the list can be requested by the respective entitled parties (primarily the owners) and the local heritage officers. Those entitled can apply for the entry of a movable monument, in particularly important cases it is done ex officio.
You can inspect the list of monuments (or enquire about its contents) at any time. The most reliable way to find out the current status of the list is to contact the State Office for the Preservation of Monuments, which maintains the list of monuments. In most cases, however, your lower monument protection authority (districts, independent cities and large district towns) can also help you quickly. If you would like to find out about the contents of the list in person rather than in writing, it is advisable to make an appointment in advance.
The monuments in Bavaria are mapped on the Internet in the so-called "Bavarian Monument Atlas". Please note, however, that objects that are not on the list of monuments or shown in the Monument Atlas can also be monuments if they fulfill the criteria of Art. 1 of the Bavarian Monument Protection Act (BayDSchG). For this reason, the list of monuments is continuously updated by the Bavarian State Office for the Preservation of Monuments according to the current state of knowledge.
There are no deadlines for suggestions or applications seeking the entry of a monument in the list of monuments or the removal of a monument from the list. Such suggestions or applications are possible at any time. The State Office for the Preservation of Monuments is primarily responsible, but your local monument protection authority will also be happy to help you.
