Garden Festival at the Kulturforum

Sound in the Garden (5)

Hidden in the architectural ensemble Kulturforum are five gardens that many Berliners and visitors do not yet know about. These green oases can be discovered during the garden festival.

Concerts, readings, guided tours, performances and a church service will bring the gardens of the Kulturforum to life. In addition, guided tours and other formats will take place in the Gemäldegalerie, the Art Library, the Kupferstichkabinett and the Neue Nationalgalerie.
