The former landfill in Georgswerder is nowadays home to four wind turbines and an information centre.
From a mountain of rubbish to a mountain of energy: the site of what was once Hamburg's greatest environmental sin is a memorial to rubbish waste today. After the Second World War, the area was used as a landfill for regularly depositing hazardous waste. From 1986, the rubbish waste hill was gradually sealed due to pressure from the public and ultimately equipped with wind turbines instead. At the information centre, you can follow an interactive guide to learn about the history of the Energieberg and how it is used today. The hill is open to the public from March to November and offers an unusual view of Hamburg with its circular route.
