The Arkadien Winnenden is a former factory site that has been transformed into an eco-friendly family village in Winnenden, to Stuttgart’s northeast. The project was completed in 2012 and now provides affordable housing in a sustainable environment, with gardens and water features fed by rainwater. The Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences has created the home+ project close to its campus – home+ is a think-tank for future living, using a photovoltaic-covered exterior and phase-changing technologies to provide highly efficient heating and cooling for the homes of tomorrow.
Woods, Water and Wonderful Walking
Stuttgart is blessed with abundant green spaces, centred on the Green U of parks in the city centre. The Schlossgarten is a corridor of calm, incorporating restful water features and convenient park cafes, and linking to Rosenstein Park, famous for the Wilhelma Botanical Gardens and Zoo and the Rosenstein Castle Natural History Museum. Stroll to Killesberg Park to find more attractive woods, water and garden features connected by a miniature railway and crowned by an observation tower with splendid city views. And if you can, make time for the Black Forest in the Swabian southwest, a Brothers Grimm vast fairytale area criss-crossed by superb walking routes and featuring the source of the River Danube.
