GreenITers PCC Sound Consumer Germany - Freiburg - Green City | The EcoTipping Points Project Long famous for its cathedral, university, and cuckoo clocks, Freiburg is now also famous as a “Green City.” It excels in the areas of transportation, energy, waste management, and land conservation, and has created a green economy that perpetuates even more environmental progress.

Messe GmbH Freiburg, a city of about 220,000 people and 155 km2 of land, is located in the southwest corner of Germany, at the edge of the Black Forest and near the borders with France and Switzerland. It was founded in the year 1120, and through the centuries of growth and modernization still maintains its Old World charm and surrounding beauty. With its large academic community, Freiburg was an early stronghold of the Green Movement in the 1970s. Transportation Freiburg was heavily bombed during World War II; little remained of the city center besides the cathedral. In 1969 Freiburg devised its first integrated traffic management plan and cycle path network.
