1. What makes our district so special?
As a district on the outskirts of Berlin, you are still right in the middle of the urban action! Spandau offers urban nature next to built-up areas and gives nature its necessary space. The range reaches from the extensive Spandauer Forst, the Rieselfelder, the water and bike trails along the Havel to Hahneberg. Nature can be discovered here in many places! With over eight grazing projects, sheep, goats and water buffalo are also part of the cityscape. Farms and vegetable fields bring urban agriculture to life.
2. Which green and sustainable places does our district have to offer?
The Spandauer Forst is one of the largest contiguous forest areas in Berlin. The Spree flows into the Havel at the Lindenufer. There t,he oldest forest school in Berlin can be found. Hahneberg nature conservation station invites you to nature adventures and Hahneberg itself scores with a unique view and one of the largest wild bee populations in the city. Here you can also marvel at cultural-historical "grown" landscapes, such as Rieselfelder Karolinenhöhe. NSG Windmühlenberg even offers a historic windmill. On the Tiefwerder meadows you can watch water buffaloes grazing. In Spandau Citadel and Fort Hahneberg you can discover Europe's largest hibernation site for bats and along the Havel you can ride on Germany's most beautiful bike path. In addition, Spandau offers two gardening schools: the Landschaftspflegeverband Spandau e.V. (Spandau Landscape Conservation Association) mediates between man and nature, and sustainable living is emphasized and exemplified in the climate workshop.
3. Which are the topics that we are most concerned with in the district?
As a coordination office, we want to inspire and invite people to participate in the diverse environmental education offerings in Spandau. Together we make nature experience spots and educational sites visible. Moreover, we offer a network of providers and users, as well as advice and information at workshops and training courses. Apart from that, we set upt the "Green Network Spandau", which is a lively network for sustainable, livable and ecologically sustainable urban nature.
