Creating NEBourhoods Together: Designing beautiful, environmentally friendly and future-proof neighbourhoods together

Creating NEBourhoods Together is based on the three principles of the New European Bauhaus: aesthetics, sustainability and inclusion. Together with citizens, creatives and experts, we develop ideas and realise projects in which the European Green Deal is implemented and brought to light.


“Making the city sustainable, affordable and attractive for all has long been at the core of what we do. The New European Bauhaus places particular emphasis on the role of culture and creativity and on directly tangible benefits for people.” Elisabeth Merk, Chief Planner of the City of Munich


Creating NEBourhoods Together

Creating NEBourhoods Together aims to make living and working in the city sustainable, socially just and environmentally friendly. As one of the European Unions's six European Lighthouse Demonstrators, we are testing new methods and innovative solutions in Munich-Neuperlach for transforming existing urban spaces. A spirit of neighbourhood community and a respectful use of our planet's resources are at the heart of our mission. We are re-establishing connections between people, buildings and public spaces and nature. Circular thinking and collective action are critical components of these sustainable transformations in daily life and in construction.

Creating NEBourhoods Together acts as an international network and creates a model for other cities to follow in spreading the goals and spirit of the New European Bauhaus throughout the world: beautiful, sustainable, inclusive.


NEB Actions

Together with actors from society, the administration, science and business, Creating NEBourhoods Together is realising ten NEB Actions for the climate-friendly and socially just development of the district by 2025. These will be implemented in our Transition Hub through two overarching processes:


Co-Creation enables the joint development of Neuperlach into a neighborhood in the spirit of the New European Bauhaus.

Entrepreneurship supports entrepreneurial thinking and action in and for the district through a variety of offers and programmes.



Creating NEBourhoods Together provides various options for getting actively involved. Please contact us by email at or by phone at 0049 152 56808634.

Creating NEBourhoods Together works within Neuperlach Action Area 6 (Handlungsraum 6 Neuperlach), which covers around 1,100 hectares and also includes neighbouring city districts. Handlungsräume are priority areas for Munich's urban development. In the north and centre of Neuperlach, around 200 hectares have been designated as urban redevelopment areas. Concepts for action areas and urban redevelopment were drawn up with public participation. Creating NEBourhoods Together deepens and complements the previously planned measures.

Creating NEBourhoods Together is one of six lighthouse projects in Europe selected and funded by the European Commission. Together with these partner projects, we are creating a movement for sustainable, inclusive and beautiful cities across Europe, implementing the goals of the European Green Deal.
