The Bavarian State Conservation Office (BLfD)

The Bavarian State Conservation Office (BLfD) is the state heritage service for the German Free State of Bavaria

As such it is tasked with managing research, management and protection of the cultural heritage of Bavaria. It is subdivided into four departments dealing with built heritage, archaeology, management and research, and non-state museums. While the institution in its current form was founded in 1908, it actually developed out of an earlier body that goes back all the way to 1835. The BLfD is based in the Old Mint in Munich, but maintains offices in Nuremberg, Regensburg, Thierhaupten and Schloss Seehof near Bamberg.

In supports of its work, the BLfD regularly organises conferences and publishes monographs, as well as a number of periodicals and series. It works in close cooperation with universities and research institutions across and beyond Germany.
