Freiburg’s sustainable districts
For decades, Freiburg has continued to grow though the available areas for further expansion have been limited by nature and land conservation regulations. City planning in Freiburg is concerned with the most effective use of former industrial or military areas instead of starting new construction projects. Rieselfeld is the largest model city district with approximately 10,000 residents. Amongst professionals the Vauban district is known worldwide for its innovative traffic concept, the solar settlement and the varied group construction architecture. The conversion of roughly 40ha of former freight railway areas for the new district Gutleutmatten is currently being implemented.
We will lead you through the new city districts with detailed knowledge of them, illuminating all their important aspects, including planning, community citizenship, architecture, energy usage, mobility, green planning and social. We will gladly set up meetings for you with architects or residents.
