SiLK - Guidelines for the protection of cultural property

13. Earthquakes


In Germany, earthquakes pose a risk to cultural property in certain regions only. If an institution is located in an earthquake-risk zone – mainly in southwestern Germany and in the area to the west of Cologne – or in a (former) mining region, preventive measures such as earthquake-proofing buildings or enhanced earthquake protection for movable cultural assets should be taken.
