Freifunk is a project for free WiFi in the whole district.

People like you and I can build a wireless data network, for free communication in the entire Pinneberg district and also nationwide. So-called Freifunk nodes are operated by volunteers in many places. Internet access is often available. Not only is it free, it's open too!

Participate now

Everyone can use the network and expand it themselves.

With free Freifunk notes. These are routers with antennas (similar to those that you already know from other wireless Internet access points). Every WLAN-capable device, for example a smartphone or notebook, can connect to the network near a node and use it to communicate with other participants.
