We are very pleased to be able to reopen the outdoor facilities - and thus give Berliners back a place to breathe, enjoy nature and relax. Unfortunately, more security also means more costs - because employing more staff and limiting the number of visitors leads to significantly higher expenses with less income. Also several weeks of closure and cancellation of events such as the Berlin Staudenmarkt has already led to heavy losses. “We are therefore currently particularly pleased when Berliners support their capital city garden in the Corona crisis – with their visit or perhaps even with a donation. And of course we wish everyone a carefree time out in our Garden, which is currently in full spring bloom”, says Director Thomas Borsch.
