Hike to Rosskopf Wind Turbines

Tuesday, July 12, 2022, 12:30 - 18:00

Kanonenplatz / Rosskopf


There will be a tour to the wind turbines on Rosskopf on July 12th afternoon for people from wind energy or control lectures that are interested in it. Participation is voluntary and completely independent and on own responsibility. Wind energy systems students start at 14:00 (sharp) at Kanonenplatz (google maps) and then walk up to Roßkopf. We go first to Siebenlinden, where the way straight up to Roßkopf starts and where we always follow the gradient direction. All walkers should arrive latest at 15:30 at the turbine closest to Roßkopfturm. There, Andreas Markowsky, head of Ökostromgruppe Freiburg, will tell us more about the wind turbines and the future plans for repowering them. He will also answer questions. Latest at 17:00 we will start to climb down and participants can expect to be home in Freiburg at around 18:00. 

Please wear proper shoes for the hike, and bring your own water, sun protection, rain protection, and mobile phone.
