Table description


This table contains figures on the number of listed monuments and historic buildings in the Netherlands on 31 December of the year in question for the years 1965-2021. Provincial and municipal monuments are not included in this table. All figures in this table are based on the Dutch National Register of Monuments and Historic Buildings which is compiled by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands. The regional classification is based on the municipal classification of January 1, 2022 for all years. The figures are not only broken down by type of monument, but also by part of the country, province and municipality.

Data available from: 1965

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 22 July 2022:
This is a new table. Tables containing the listed monuments using the regional classifications for the years 2015-2020 can be found in the data archive. The older tables use a classification of the type of monument into 11 categories and do not include archeological monuments. This new table uses a new classification of the type of monument into 14 main categories (hoofdcategorieën), including archeological monuments. Of these main categories 13 are currently in use.

When will new figures be published?
The figures with the endposition of December 31, 2022 will be available in the second quarter of 2023 in a new table with the municipal classification of 2023. The figures from previous years 1965-2021 will also be presented according to the municipal classification of 2023.
