Ecological Housing Tour

Private tour in Amsterdam

Tour Price : 380-440 euro Duration : half day Languages: English, German, Dutch

 

Sustainable and ecologically-friendly energy is one of the top priorities in the European long-term policy. And the Netherlands aren’t falling short in this domain, often taking risky and original undertakings to show that this initiative is viable and possible to achieve for everyone. This tour in Holland  will show you this fascinating part of Dutch life and its remarkable engineering capabilities, which have resulted in one of the largest sustainable residential areas in Europe, if not in the world.

During 2009 the royal initiative gave birth to the project called City of the Sun. Of course, its concept is not to create the perfect utopian city as the famous thinker Tommaso Campanella imagined, but it certainly does take us on a new level of housing and organizing our everyday activities with respect to efficient and sustainable energy consumption.

By visiting this remarkable district, you will learn about the latest developments in using all possible types of energy including the sun, water, wind and even junk recycling.  You will also have the opportunity to admire some of the most picturesque Dutch landscapes and learn about the tremendous land reclamation project, which was even included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Speaking about the reclamation project, it’s interesting to note that the general layout of the channels and strips of land embodied in this project was used as a base for the general street plan of the New York City.
