Food in Berlin: Prinzessinnengarten

One of the biggest and most well-known urban gardening projects in Berlin is based in Kreuzberg and called Prinzessinnengärten. It’s a beautiful place that transformed a former urban wasteland at Moritzplatz (once the location of the departmentstore Wertheim) into a prosperous and flourishing garden. Everything is grown in mobile planting containers since the city only allows a temporary lease of one year at a time and the garden must be moveable. This rather displeasing lease strategy of course guarantees that the now coveted space is available for a high priced sale to investors. Since we think losing this project is not an option, we highly recommend you support them by visiting, buying their produce and/or donating. PLUS: SIGN THE PETITION!

Besides offering a huge variety of vegetables, flowers and herbs to grow and harvest yourself or simply buy from their Kiosk, you can also visit their garden café and restaurant, which offers a daily lunch menu.
Needless to say that their approach is aiming for organic and sustainable farming. The project has also been designed to create a social hub in Kreuzberg, merging people from different backgrounds with the common goal of establishing a gardening community, which not only feeds but also educates and entertains people.

In short, it’s a delightful place to spend your summer time and a proper playground for your green thumb.

Learn more about the project and its concept in this video. Get your hands dirty every Thursday 15.00–18.00 and every 11.00–14.00 during the gardening hours open for everyone.

    Wunderbare Sache, und schrecklich dass es von der Stadt nicht besser unterstützt wird… Nachhaltigkeit und friedliches Zusammenleben, was könnte sich Berlin mehr wünschen?

    Hallo, ich bin schon öfters da gewesen und finde es einfach nur toll dort. Kann ich jedem empfehlen. Man kann auch auf dem kleinsten Balkon oder im Zimmer eine Pflanze ziehen und die kann auch eine Tomate sein.

    Excellent text and absolutely brilliant photos – hope you don´t mind me re-blogging you – why bother writing about something that somebody else has already written so well about?:-)
