The Prinzessinnengärten (germ.: princess gardens) are at Moritzplatz in Kreuzberg and were constructed after the ‘urban gardening’ concept. It is an area that is quite large with 6000m² and lay idle for over 60 years until 2009. Now the residents of that neighbourhood have made it a mobile garden with plants in empty bags of rice, milk Tetra Packs and recycled bakery boxes. The city continues to rent it each year to plant something new.
The non-profit organisation responsible for the gardens is called Nomadisch Grün and wants to “create productive and green domains at open and unused spaces in order to enable the public to try out new things and learn together”.
Guests have the opportunity to participate in a patch-partnership or enjoy some of the fresh and organic products in the garden café.
An amazing idea and project that allows all the city residents, who do not have their own garden but are nevertheless interested in gardening, to participate, learn and have fun in the nature! There is a playground for children available, several interesting guides to be booked and workshops to register to. If you want to spontaneously stop by, you’d best come around on Thursdays from 3pm – 6pm or on Saturdays from 11am – 2pm.
