The Gardens of the World, Wuhletal Valley and Kienberg Park featuring the entrance area, Kienberg Hill and Kienberg promenade – the 104-hectare IGA grounds are divided into five large areas with diverse and multifaceted horticultural and architectural attractions.
The Gardens of the World showcase the diversity of international garden design and also feature the open-air stage, tropical hall and visitor centre. The natural areas around the Wuhletal Valley are perfect for exploring rare flora and fauna, while the IGA campus on the Kienberg promenade invites children and young people to try out environmental experiments, attend international work camps and embark on green voyages of discovery. The ‘Horizons’ exhibition by the Kienberg terraces presents new and innovative lifestyle developments in areas such as aquaponics, nutrition and urban tech. The best way for visitors to climb Kienberg Hill, where the ‘Wolkenhain’ observation platform affords fantastic views of the IGA grounds, is to glide above the ground – with the ropeway. The entrance area to Kienberg Park is one of appealing contrasts. Bordered by urban high-rise buildings, it features regional horticultural produce at the gardeners’ market, the ‘Märkischer Garden’ and the ‘Konrad in Elektropolis’ play and exercise area for young people.
