At the Gardens of the World you can go on a world tour in just one day: Admire exotic flowers and plants from the cable car or from close up, discover foreign cultures, enjoy music under the open sky, run riot around in our playgrounds or simply relax – the Gardens of the World are as diverse as our visitors.
Your trip around the globe starts at the Kienberg in Marzahn-Hellersdorf. From there you go directly from the U5 station “Kienberg - Gardens of the World” with the cable car to the main entrance of the Gardens of the World at Blumberger Damm, enjoying a wonderful view over Berlin along the way.
Your journey begins here through ten themed gardens and nine international garden galleries where you can explore seas of flowers and plants from all over the world. Discover the green diversity of Europe, marvel at the nature of Bali, Japan, China, or Korea and immerse yourself in religious traditions in the Christian, Oriental, or nascent Jewish garden. Find inspiration in the breathtaking architecture or ancient rituals like Aboriginal “fire stick farming” in the garden galleries. The theme gardens are further enriched by the Water Gardens of the Promenade Aquatica, the rose garden, and the rhododendron grove.
In the Gardens of the World, several playgrounds await the little ones next to the Maze. A special highlight is the water playground “Konrad rides into the South Seas” based on Erich Kästner’s famous children's novel “Der 35. Mai”. An enormous climbing whale, a water forest, a giant hammock, a trampoline, and South Sea huts offer unique fun on the playground. Children can go on rallies to explore the Gardens of the World in a playful way.
If you forgot your picnic basket, you are welcome to visit our our restaurants and snack bars. No matter whether you are in the mood for Italian, English, Balinese, Chinese or Berlin cuisine, we will provide you with culinary specialties along your journey through the Gardens of the World. For dessert you can enjoy an ice cream in the café in the Japanese Garden or a tea in the Chinese Garden.
The modern visitor and conference center, built according to ecological standards, was also a new development for IGA Berlin 2017. Far from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, up to 300 people will find an optimal working atmosphere with a view of the extensive natural surroundings. The conference center rounds off the diverse range of the world’s gardens and makes them a space where everyone can find their place.
