More about the partner

Only 50 km away from Neuruppin, the central location of the anniversary year, the former episcopal city of Wittstock/Dosse will be conquered by the »Landesgartenschau« (horticultural show) from April 18 to October 6, 2019. At the confluence of the rivers Dosse and Glinze an attractive garden and park landscape has been created. The historic Ringwall, which completely surrounds the old town, offers all-round views. It is the unique backdrop for Brandenburg’s large garden party. Two theme gardens are dedicated to the life and work of Theodor Fontane. For 172 days, the »Landesgartenschau« invites you to enjoy the diverse and high-quality program of events.
