Highlights:The Freie Mitte as a new green oasis

The site of the former northern railway station shows how urban development and nature conservation can be reconciled. 40.9 hectares of usable land, 10 hectares of nature and parkland and living space for many people. An intelligent mix of housing, education, offices, commerce and recreation.

About the Nordbahnviertel

An up-and-coming new district and innovative living space for 40,000 people has been created here. 70 stores, an educational campus, modern office space, all leisure facilities and spacious green oases make the district a best-practice example of a "city of short distances" with a particularly high quality of life. Pedestrians and cyclists clearly have priority here. The creation of socially mixed neighborhoods is an essential component of active neighborhood and community management.
