Kö-Bogen is one of the des­tin­a­tions of the city walk on the top­ic of cli­mate change with Vis­it Düsseldorf

City walk around the climate

POS­TED BY ALEX IWAN, 28. Feb­ru­ar 2024

Cli­mate change is one of the greatest glob­al chal­lenges of our time, with its impacts being diverse and far-reach­ing. Cli­mate change is not only an envir­on­ment­al issue but also has social, eco­nom­ic, and polit­ic­al dimen­sions. Dur­ing the 2‑hour city walk Cli­mate (Change), Vis­it Düs­sel­dorf com­bines the major sights of our city with inform­a­tion about the cli­mate along the Rhine and how it affects our city. Dur­ing the tour, not only are his­tor­ic­al facts nar­rated inter­est­ingly, but also bridges are repeatedly built to today’s chal­lenges of cli­mate change – from urb­an plan­ning meas­ures of the past and future to mod­ern cli­mate-friendly build­ings and the role of green spaces and con­tem­por­ary tree stock.

The Kö-Bogen is a sus­tain­able high­light of the city and the walk. The build­ing ensemble is not only an archi­tec­tur­al mas­ter­piece but also con­trib­utes to envir­on­ment­al pro­tec­tion with its LEED cer­ti­fic­a­tion. The extens­ively greened roof houses five insect hotels and 24 nest­ing boxes for vari­ous anim­al spe­cies, includ­ing endangered spe­cies such as kestrels and bats, which were developed in col­lab­or­a­tion with the NABU. The facade of the build­ing is ver­tic­ally struc­tured through incisions, in which green­ing is integ­rated. This brings the adja­cent court­yard garden into the build­ing. The Kö-Bogen is an inspir­ing example of sus­tain­able con­struc­tion in the city and deserves to be explored.  Join us on Sunday, March 10th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, meet­ing point is the Tour­ist Inform­a­tion — Vis­it Düs­sel­dorf Rhein­straße 3, 40213 Düsseldorf.
