The classification of the Neuf-Brisach Remarkable Heritage Site (RPS) and the boundaries of the Perimeter Boundaries (PDA) were called for a public inquiry from April 17 to May 17, 2023.

The ranking Site Outstanding Heritage (RPD)

Neuf-Brisach, municipality of Haut-Rhin, member of the Alsace Rhine Brisach (CCARB) community of municipalities, is part of the network of major sites of Vauban, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. As such, the municipality has embarked on a procedure of classification of Remarkable Heritage Site (RPD).

The RPS is a heritage tool designed to bring together towns, villages or neighbourhoods whose conservation, restoration, rehabilitation or development is of historical, architectural, archaeological, artistic or landscape interest.

The classification procedure is carried out by the CCARB as contracting authority.

The DRAC Grand-Est is funding up to 50% of this study, which will make it possible to better manage the Neuf-Brisach heritage recognized by UNESCO.

The Delimited Perimeter of approaches (PDA)

The classification study under the SPR is accompanied by a procedure of Perimeter Délimité des Abords (PDA) around the fifteen historical monuments of the commune of Neuf-Brisach and around the Fort Morter of Volgelsheim.

These PDAs aim to redefine the 500-metre protection areas generated by historic monuments in favour of areas of built and landscaped heritage interest.


The classification of SPR and its perimeter were unanimously approved by the National Commission of Heritage and Architecture on July 7, 2022 and the communities concerned deliberated.

Epublic inquiry

The single public inquiry into the RPD and PDA classification takes place from April 17 to May 17, 2023.
