Pope Benedict XVI in Freiburg
At the end of his Germany trip, Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to visit Freiburg on 24 and 25 September. "Wherever God is, there is a future" is the motto under which 100,000 believers will gather to attend two services to be held by the head of the Catholic Church.
NUSSLI will support this large-scale open-air event by constructing a 2,200 square metre covered altar island on the premises of Freiburg airport which will include a lift from the Pope's sacristy to the main stage. The complex roof construction with its 16 metre projection posed a particular challenge for the assembly team, as it had to meet high architectural and technical standards.
