Come join us as we tour the Federal Horticultural Exposition held in the beautifully historic Baltic Sea city of Schwerin. This Olympian of garden shows, held only once every two years in a different city in Germany will show you all aspects of contemporary and progressive designs from dynamic playgrounds, to bold, colorful plantings, to nature themed recreational facilities, to lively water features with some aspects for children, to the display of using plants as renewable resources, to green, dynamic architecture, fun entertainment, and good food.
Also, a major part of this tour will rediscover the rich heritage of Saxony, other eastern Germany states, and the regions beautiful cities like Dresden, Weimar, and Berlin, to the coal mining history and recent ecological rebirth of Bitterfeld, to one of Germany's most influential garden designers, horticulturists, and writers, Karl Foerster, and to the rich architectural history and refocusing of the Bauhaus school.
In addition, we will explore contemporary environmentally friendly, green, sustainable, and progressive designs as found in Wolfgang Oehme's colorful perennial meadow at Amber Lake, an outrageously conceived mixed use building with roof gardens designed by Viennese artist and architect Hundertwasser, and swimming ponds that allow humans to swim with frogs and fish. Also, if time permits, optional excursions include the beautifully restored city of Dresden, the new idea of a barefoot park, and Germany's longest tree canopy elevated walkway through an old growth forest.
