Knowledge transfer

One of the most important tasks of the Kaiserpfalz Research Centre is the maintenance of the Archaeological Zone Kaiserpfalz (AZK) as the historical and tourist visiting card of the town of Ingelheim. This includes all monument areas including the access infrastructure such as paths, lighting, information signage etc. Maintenance includes monument preservation, structural, touristic and technical aspects as well as traffic safety issues. These tasks are the responsibility of the knowledge transfer unit, which is therefore responsible for the maintenance of Ingelheim’s main tourist attraction.

Photographic work that arises in all areas of work at the Kaiserpfalz Research Centre (photography of finds in the finds archive, documentation of the condition of the monument areas, documentation of exhibitions and events) is also the responsibility of the knowledge transfer department.
