The movement heritage: paths and trails in sustainable and inclusive heritage management

Landscapes which appear as wilderness or nature are often rather shaped by culture. They contain comprehensive traces and remains from different kinds of movement. These traces represent a neglected cultural heritage, the movement heritage. Landscapes of movement have been shaped by hiking, hunting, outdoor life, tourism, sports, and training. The demand for places suitable for movement, training and events continue to grow. We will formulate an expansion of the landscape heritage through one of its most defining practices, movement by foot. This heritage is physical in form of paths, trails and effects on vegetation, but also a local memory landscape or life world with great significance.
