December 2019 | City2Share wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

An exciting, beautiful and thrilling year 2019 comes to an end. Like last year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who visited and used our site, who took part in the activities and some of them became active themselves. With the foundation of a citizens' initiative and the continuation of the concept, some successes could be achieved here.
We would also like to thank all those who visited us at our stand and discussed the measures with us. We are not at an end with this topic and will continue to seek dialogue in 2020.

We wish you and your families a wonderful, relaxing and contemplative Christmas time! Come well into the new year!
See you soon, the City2Share team

The City2Share team would like to thank all residents, participants and activists for their commitment and support. At the Piazza, the project will continue next year (see report) and the City2Share project will come to a conclusion in 2020.Translated with (free version)

09.11.2018 | Piazza Zenetti is a future model

The public place is for people. It should be practical, but also beautiful. This is becoming increasingly difficult in the big city. To create a place that makes sense for all road users, but also with a quality of life for residents, is a balancing act. Many things have to be reconciled. City2Share, together with the City of Munich and Green City as partners, has started a successful pilot project with the Zenettiplatz in the slaughterhouse and cattle yard quarter.

17.10.2018 | Your feedback is important: whether Piazza Zenetti will be back next year will also be decided by the residents' feedback.

The first weeks, even after the organised action programme, have shown that the play on the square works wonderfully even without any instructions and only with the ideas of the residents. The first neighbourhood events have already been established on the "PiazzaZenetti". The residents can still use the area until the beginning of November, and there are no limits to their creativity. Whether the piazza will be available again next year, however, will also be decided by the residents' feedback. Citizens can give their feedback on the project by e-mail to, via an online dialogue at the end of October at and at a mailbox on site at Zenettiplatz.

27.06.2018 | Results of the 2nd quarter table I "More green, more space - fewer parking spaces: Redesign of the Zenettiplatz"

On the second quarter table within the framework of City2Share, residents, multipliers and project partners discussed with the planners what the "new" Zenettiplatz should look like. Because Zenettiplatz is being redesigned: Next to the mobility station, which will be built on a part of the square, a new place will be created on the other side of the square - with more greenery, seating and places to stay. After the first ideas were already collected at the Quartierswerkstatt last year, the raumzeug planning office has now developed a first draft on behalf of the City of Munich. This was presented and discussed at the neighbourhood table, to which a public invitation was issued. It became clear: The redesign is a good opportunity for the neighbourhood, as there are no recreational areas in the neighbourhood. This requires a lot of greenery and good ideas on how the course can be designed in such a way that it is protected from traffic noise. Further ideas were collected on the neighbourhood table and the design is now being revised. The opening of the new Zenettiplatz will take place on 17 September 2018.
