The WÄLDERHAUS at the Wilhelmsburger Inselpark in Hamburg is completely dedicated to the topic "Forest and Wood". Around 80 stations provide exciting explanations of how the forest influences the ecological system of our planet.
The Wälderhaus in Hamburg illustrates the topic and connections of forest, environment and sustainability in a completely new, impressive and fascinating way .
With its Wälderhaus project, the Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald (German Forest Conservation Association) combines the programmatic challenge of thinking and integrating forest and sustainability directly into urban space.
At the Wälderhaus, visitors can discover the smallest living creatures in the forest floor and accompany the forest animals on their way into the city. At the heart of the Forest House is the Forest Science Center, where everything worth knowing about the forest ecosystem and urban nature is conveyed. On 600 square metres, over two floors and at around 80 exploration and microscopy stations, the abundance of aspects of the forest can be experienced.
"What is forest"? The Science Center Wald answers these and other questions about our domestic forests. In the Science Center, visitors can immerse themselves in the wonderful world of the forest and let themselves be surprised by its diversity and diversity. Exciting film screenings in the Kobelkino and the forest laboratory with 200 species of wood from all over the world round off the exhibition.
The Science Center Wald is aimed at adults, families, professional groups and school classes. We have developed a varied programme of events especially for schools.
The Wälderhaus, is absolutely eye-catching. The building, which is built entirely of solid wood, has an ‘inhabited’ larch wood facade. Various species of birds and insects live in the many nesting plants found here. The green roof also provides habitat for plants and animals. It also combines a hotel, the Wilhelms restaurant and sustainable conference rooms in the Forest Forum under its green roof.
