Forest. Berlin. Climate. The Exhibition in the Forest
The Grunewald Forest is currently being adapted into a ‘near-natural, structural, site-specific, climate adapted mix’ forest in response to climate change. Visit the exhibition on the site which explores how the forest has and will be impacted by further changes to the climate. This is also a great opportunity to walk around the Grunewald Forest which is roughly 7,400 acres and a great rambling spot.
