Freiburg - A Model for Future Urban Planning

Euromaxx travels to the Breisgau region and the city of Freiburg. Home to one of Germany's oldest universities, Freiburg is seen by many as a model for future urban planning.

With respect to climate protection, sustainability and future-proof concepts for living, it’s one of the pioneers. Freiburg was named Germany’s most sustainable city in 2012.

The magazine also introduces the concept of “biophilic architecture” and visits a restaurant in Finland with an innovative zero-waste approach.
