Alpine and pre-alpine meadow and marsh landscapes is part of the Tentative list of Germany in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Alpine and pre-alpine meadow and marsh landscapes are a series of cultural landscapes in which a traditional form of agriculture in the Alpine region has been preserved. The cultivation of these historic meadowlands dates back to the 15th and 16th centuries. The proposal includes historic “Wiesmahder” (poor meadows), the largest occurrence of “Buckelwiesen” (poor grassland with many humps) and the “Murnauer Moos”, the largest contiguous marshland in Central Europe.
