What the stonemasonry trade does to preserve our cultural heritage is shown by the results of the competition for the Peter Parler Award 2009, which is presented at Stone+tec Nürnberg 2009 on 21 May. The winner is the stone restoration firm Bauer-Bornemann to the project team leaders  Ulrich Bauer-Bornemann and Wolfgang Schmidt.

Natural stone database, news, newsletters, technical dictionary, online trade show, and much more – the new trade portal for the Naturstein Magazine offers everything that the industry needs. The centrepiece is a database with information and images of more than 4.500 natural stones.
