Solar Park South is a 10 km research campus and recreational route. For visitors, the route is the destination. For researchers, cooperation with farmers, artists and engineers drives innovation.

The juxtaposition of art and engineering is the only way to innovation. New channels of communication and investigation are developed through cooperative projects. The balance of the harsh hillsides and graceful ribbon of old highway is a fitting backdrop for this new research and recreation zone.

Traveling by bike is different. In the absence of combustion engines, tourists are invited see the landscape from a new perspective, moving by bike or on foot. At Energy-Houses along the route you can borrow an (electric)bike or recharge your battery.

The landscape can occupy you for an hour or a week. It is divided in three sections, each of which fosters a specific form of collaborative research. Trails run parallel to the old highway and through the three sections of the landscape.
