Excursion to Freiburg

1740 hours of sunshine per year make Freiburg to Germany’s sunniest city. And that is just one reason to pay a visit: In 2010 the city was awarded with the title ‘Federal capital in climate protection 2010’. This prize acknowledges the city’s comprehensive efforts and leading role in climate protection measures. On a ‘Green City Tour’ the group got an impression of some innovative approaches, such as the city’s integrated mobility strategy, urban gardening initiatives, renewable energies, and sustainable living. On the second day the group left the urban grounds and headed into the wild to discover a riparian wilderness trail within a flood retention area.
