Young and old can find plenty of ideas for modern living at the home² fair to be held in Hamburg’s fairgrounds from January 27-29, 2017. Visitors can expect over 160 exhibitors, 50 keynotes and several special shows focusing on buying, building and renovating property. North Germany’s latest fair for the property sector will focus on the increasingly important issue of age-appropriate buildings e.g. how to make showers and bathrooms for the elderly easy to access.

The Hamburg Authority for Health and Consumer Protection and the social welfare organisation Diakonischen Werk will present a model apartment for people with dementia to show how they can furnish their homes and remain largely independent.
