Všeobecný popis The history of Open Houses dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people began to restore actual disused village churches. The focus lies on restoration and public use of historical monuments, which allows a long-lasting and effective recovery of the buildings. Currently Open Houses has several historic buildings in its care. All of them are attractive ensembles which display centuries of history. But most of them stood vacant for a very long time and suffered serious structural damage.
In accordance to the above-described focus on heritage, European Heritage Volunteers, a branch of Open Houses, organises Heritage Volunteers Projects, some of them in the framework of the World Heritage Volunteers initiative. European Heritage Volunteers has been active in heritage-related volunteering for more than twenty years. Its objective is to establish links between the fields of heritage and volunteering by continuously working to foster a deeper understanding of heritage and volunteering among those active in either field, and by linking the two fields through practical hands-on projects and educational activities. Typ práce The project consists of two parts – a practical working part which will last six hours per day and a study part, which takes place in the evenings and during weekends
The project will include various works at the Markus-Röhling-Stolln visitors’ mine aiming to the improvement of its presentation to the public – a reproduction of a historic element outside the mine and the extension of the visitors’ area underground.
The main task will involve the recreation of a historical Kaue structure for the exhibition on the mine. A Kaue is a protective wooden hut which was built over a vertical mine shaft in pre-industrial mining to guard it against the elements.
The participants will work under the guidance of a master carpenter specialised in mining-related carpentry techniques. Together they will build a reproduction of a historical Kaue. There are currently no original Kaue conserved in the Ore Mountains, since these were meant to be temporary structures which would often decay due to the wet air from the shafts and the expositions to the elements above, and would therefore have to be periodically replaced. For this reason, the reproduction will be based on the best-known historical evidence to how the structure would have looked like in the region.
Additionally, the participants will assist the association which is managing the visitors’ mine in expanding the current underground visitors’ tour sections. In order to enable in the future a circular tour underground the association currently re-opens historical tunnels which had not been accessible since 18th century and prepares them to receive visitors. For this reason, they will need the help of the participants to remove debris from these areas and to transport them manually or with wheelbarrows from the narrow parts of the tunnels to the underground railway which will transport it outside the mine.
The educational programme of the project will be complemented by guided visits to historical landmarks of mining heritage of the region, which will allow to contextualise the work for the participants and provide them with an overview of the cultural interactions between the mining history and the local traditions of the communities living in the Ore Mountains. Additionally, there will be a lecture on the values of the site as a UNESCO World Heritage site and the procedure involved in the recognition of the region as a place of significance under the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, imparted by a heritage professional involved in the process.

Ubytovanie All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money.
ACCOMMODATION
In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple, there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water.
FOOD
The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. Camp Advert     Požiadavky Motivation letter related to the project

Adresa: Annaberg, Chemnitz, Germany


Letisko: LEJ, Autobusová/Vlaková zastávka: Annaberg-Buchholz (7km)

The setting for the project will be the outstanding mining cultural landscape of Annaberg-Frohnau, which is a district contained within a wider cultural area known today as the Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří (Ore Mountains), spanning an extensive region in south-eastern Germany and north-western Czech Republic which held a wealth of several metals exploited through mining from the Middle Ages onwards. The region developed as a powerhouse for industrial mining advancement, becoming the epicentre of technological developments which had a transcendental impact in mining throughout the world. For this reason, the Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří Mining Region has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 2019.
The Frohnau silver mining area, immediately associated with the town, has been shaped by a large number of historic mines from the late 15th to the 20th centuries. The landscape is an extensive mining area characterised by a large number of historic open cast and underground mining sites. Mining ceased at the end of the 19th century, but resumed in 1946 in connection with uranium ore mining in the Markus Röhling mining concession. These efforts, however, did not result in the extraction of any significant amounts of uranium ore.
The Markus Röhling mine with its adit and underground galleries from the 18th / 19th century (silver and cobalt mining) and the wheel chambers from the 18th century as well as the galleries of the 20th century (uranium mining), became the most important mine in the Annaberg-Frohnau Mining Landscape particularly due to the opening up of high-grade ore zones. The historical mining site Markus-Röhling-Stolln is nowadays open for the public as visitors’ mine.
