Tour "Landgang" (best practices in sustainable urban development and climate adaption in the newly built district Hafencity)


The International Building Exhibition (IBA 2013) (sustainable urban development in an existing district shown through examples such as the conversion of a former toxic waste dump to the “energy hill”, the plan of converting a former WWII Bunker to an “energy bunker”, etc.)


The Hamburg Miniatur Wunderland the largest model railway in the world and its focus on sustainability)
