Garmischer Strasse becomes a low-key access road with a significant reduction in traffic. A generous central walkway of around ten metres width is to be fitted into the currently large road space of Garmischer Strasse.
The central promenade becomes a park prioritising vegetation and people and, using aesthetically designed lighting, surfaces and street furniture, provides a space for urban life.
A continuous walkway with benches invites people to stroll along the connection between Westpark and Luise-Kiesselbach-Platz. The promenade now links the neighbourhoods on either side which had once been severed by the road.
