This paper explores the applicability of the software prototype developed for personalized access to semantically enriched art collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in a different environment – city rather than museum. As a case study we take Amsterdam, a World Heritage City, i.e. a city that includes urban areas designated as World Heritage (WH). This is the first step towards turning our prototype into a generic tool applicable for generating recommendations/personalized routes in indoor and outdoor environments based on semantically described data of the museum collection or points of interest in the city. Moreover we allow for user model information reuse between various domains/scenarios served by our Web-based application therefore addressing the cold start problem while starting to use a new application. Keywords: Personalisation, cultural/world heritage, semantic enrichment, sightseeing, city guide, protected urban planet
