Dubai, the Easter Island - and now Hofgeismar in Northern Hesse, Germany. This is an "absolute Lighthouse project", says architect Tom Krause. No, he roars it. "This will be a sensation for all of Europe." Around 420 million are to be invested. Five luxury hotels, 600 villas and apartments, several golf courses, an artificial lake landscape of 34 hectares, as well as a trotting course and an Polo field. And not to forget: 1000 jobs. Mayor Henner Sattler (CDU) is the engine of the whole. An extraordinary city head. He is emotional, gripping to, sympathetic and open. What can possibly go wrong?
