Intercultural Gardens

I discovered Intercultural Gardens last week when I was on my way from Potsdamer Platz to Kreuzberg. Took a left from Stresemannstraße into Möckernstraße und walked by Tempodrom in direction of (essentially) Yorckstraße, and when you keep going on Möckernstraße for ten or so minutes you will notice a couple exists leading up into something like a park – which is the Intercultural Gardens.

I read the Wikipedia entry on Interculural Gardens which is basically about integration and understanding (one another), but doesn’t really go into detail about what is going on there. Unfortunately there is nothing about Berlin/Gleisdreieck at all, so if anyone has any info what is going on there, I’d be interested to hear it.

It looks like there are sometimes people living there. In the middle there were people working on sculptures and then it also did look like they sometimes have concerts there – but nothing to specific unfortunately. Also noticed a construction sign about planting/greening of the place.

This is one of my favorite shows from that afternoon, more here.

    came there a once or twice for a long walk, and i absolutely love the site. i remember a good friend of mine talked me into it, for when he (being an enthusiastic biologist) last went there, he discovered plants he’d never seen in mid-europe before. unfortunately, i don’t have any idea about what’s going on there, though…
    anyway, these photos on flickr are breathtakingly beautiful!

    Thanks, too kind! :)

    I think the plant might come from people bringing it. Someone emailed me that apparently different people (from abroad etc.) can bring plants? I’m not so sure how exactly this works.
