The former flak bunker in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg is becoming a symbol for climate protection. The monument, which has hardly been used since the end of the Second World War, is being turned into a renewable power plant with a large-scale heat storage system. It supplies the Reiherstieg District with heat and feeds renewable electricity into Hamburg’s distribution grid. One of the flak towers houses Café Vju and its unique viewing terrace: the cantilevered slab that runs right around the building at a height of 30 metres provides a 360-degree view across Hamburg. The café and an exhibition on the history of the bunker will be officially opened on 23 March 2013.
