HISTORY // AVIATION
This extraordinary expedition into the ups and downs of aviation in Adlershof offers experiences and encounters that will surprise you. Johannisthal / Adlershof were the cradle of German aviation. Germany’s first airfield opened here in 1909 and quickly became the mecca for aviators from all over Europe. More than 400,000 people from Berlin and Brandenburg flocked to the flight shows to see the daredevil pioneers in their flying machines. Our guides will take you to many of the numerous aviation monuments from that turbulent age – the Great Wind Canal and the Trudelturm, a tailspin wind tunnel – when Adlershof was also home to scientific research on aviation.
GROWTH ENGINE “ENERGIEWENDE”
The “Energiewende”, Germany’s strategy for a transition to clean energy, offers seminal chances for innovation and growth. Our intriguing tour on the subject will introduce you to new energy storage technologies, Adlershof’s future energy concept and energy-efficient construction and living. It will show you the multitude of photovoltaics facilities and the application of alternative energy sources, such as geothermal energy, and take you on a visit to our Centre for Photovoltaics and Renewable Energies. Innovation, progress, and sustainability – in Adlershof these do not contradict, but advance each other.
