Allotment gardens in Prenzlauer Berg show history from 1896
A new wayfinding system of the Pankow allotment garden colony Bornholm 1 leads the visitors through more than 120 years of history.
Berlin. Allotment gardens in Berlin have a future if they open up as urban places – the Bornholm 1 colony has long been convinced of this. Now the facility is starting a new pilot project together with the Senate Department for the Environment to open up the gardens to everyone. With the help of five large display boards, the Laubenpieper visitors will tell the story of the site in the former East Berlin border area at the Bösebrücke. The depiction of the epochs goes back to the imperial era in 1896. A gardening group will develop and implement the historical signage system over the course of the winter.
