An ever-changing park


Since its opening as part of the Federal Garden Show in 1985, the award-winning Britzer Garten has stood for a colorful diversity of plants, recreation, and a multi-layered interweaving of landscape, art, and architecture.

Berlin and its residents have changed a lot in recent years. Stressed city dwellers need space for recreation and sports activities, young-at-heart elderly people are looking for health-promoting offers and families with children need places to play and romp. The importance of the Britzer Garten as an open space for recreation, exercise and inspiration in a big city like Berlin is currently even more evident during the Corona crisis. This makes it all the more important to preserve the Britzer Garten as a green oasis in the middle of the city, to develop it further in a gender-appropriate and barrier-free way, and to let it grow with the changing needs of the people. This is because the park can accommodate people's changing living conditions and thus continue to make its unique contribution to a better quality of life for residents and Berliners in the future.
