In a period of 100 years the Hoge Kempen made an impressive transition. A mono cultural rural economy and society transformed into a multi cultural industrial one. This (r)evolution can be read in today's landscape, the traces have been preserved. This gives an impressive mosaic of landscapes, buildings and identities.
We are convinced that this property adds an exceptional and unique aspect of human cultural development to the World Heritage List.
