In this article the author sketches out the current debate surrounding heritage interpretation in Germany. Until recently, Germany has had an uneasy relationship with heritage interpretation. Many conservationists argued that it did not sit comfortably with the established practice of environmental education and the subject in its broader context remained little known. In addition, such interpretation that did exist was often poorly executed. For a long time, only a handful of individuals were concerned with heritage interpretation in Germany.
