Abstract As we know that our forefather’s culture inheritance should protected such as the old historical building, monument and so on. We should not just close our eyes and then ignore it. Lawangsewu building is one of the old historical buildings as a landmark and icon for the City of Semarang. It is also a national cultural asset and one of the tourism resorts so basically it’s dealing with the Indonesian law, regulation and the government’s authority. Actually there are a lot of foreign and domestic investors who want to use Lawangsewu building as a hotel but usually it has been just a topic without an action. Nowadays, most of the historical buildings in Semarang are ‘lost’ and it has been uncountable how many of them were lost because of the economic and political reason. The City of Semarang’s government has goodwill on planning and managing toward the Lawangsewu building because of the terribly condition of it (there is a lot of damaged because of a lot of exhibition were took place in that building). One of the plans was about using it as Semarang Tourism and Culture Department, Semarang Centre of Tourism Information, Centre of Planning and Development Information of The City of Semarang. Recently there are some creative and innovative ideas appears to utilize the old historical buildings. It means that now our people are understood about the significance of ‘the mute witness’ of our city’s history. Let us together make Semarang as the greatest city. For me the great city is the city which has a past, present and future. The great city always be an ideal city for all of us.
