Funkenwerkstatt Magazine gives you a look at green projects, their achievements and the inspiring faces of the founders behind those. In easy words it explains and displays what the term ‘sustainability’ actually means and tries to complete the puzzle of a sustainable living as it already exists around the globe.

Divided in the three themes: Humans, Culture and Nature, it is the documentation of our journey in order to bring you closer to the sustainable collaborations that are out there and deserve our attention. It is made to learn, share and develop.





Its all about ideas. Funkenwerkstatt-Magazine is a pool of ideas, which will give you lots of input in several areas. We try to be as creative as possible to do so, we work interdisciplinary. Not running ideas are nothing worth, but Funkenwerkstatt will show you principles of how things are working and what it needs to run these projects. With an understanding of how things can be used you may get new ideas of using them in your own way.

This is the speedometer of our firetruck “Grisu” which starts in Freiburg at 0 km. On our journey from project to project the kilometers added to the speedometer. With every project the distance from Freiburg to that Project is shown.



The concept of Funkenwerkstatt Magazine is a mixture of comic elements with fotography and informative interviews and comments.


Grisu is 45 years old a Mercedes firetruck and our workshop for the magazine. Its our home, workshop and working space while travelling to sustainable projects. Having our own tools on board we hope we can help out at projects we are visiting.


Have a look insight of Grisu, we illustrated some things we got with us on our journey for example a overview of the electrics and our small kitchen. If you are interessted in how we did the converting check out our instagram.


It took us just three weeks for the whole converting of Grisu. We almost recycled everything we could found on the streets or what was left from the old firestruck stuff which was insight. We got out almost 200 kg of Steel and 200 kg of woods.
