GARDEN FESTIVAL “landesgartenschau” Überlingen 2021
Refreshing – boundless – garden rich! For years dredging, building, planting: from April 30th to October 17th 2021, the long-planned and prepared horticultural show takes place in Überlingen. With the Landesgartenschau, the city gets a six-hectare, diversified landscaped park with secluded squares under shady trees and shrubs, lawns and meadows for playing and relaxing, sand and gravel for sports and leisure.
The park offers a lot of fun and movement: on land, on the water or in the water, because there are large areas of direct lake access in the new park. The large sandy area, the giant swings are for children and adults a pleasure and who wants to kneippen, simply goes into the largest Kneipp basin in the world – the Lake Constance.
The Landesgartenschau also provided the impetus to qualitatively enhance green areas within the city and to link them together. The current dates as well as dates and facts about the Landesgartenschau can be found online at www.überlingen2020.de.
