Berlin is playing host to one of the top springtime tourist attractions, the IGA Berlin. The international horticultural exhibition (IGA) offers a range of activities for everyone amidst an ocean of flowers.
This unique garden festival is situated in the Marzahn-Hellersdorf area of Berlin, making use of the green spaces around Kienberg Park and the Wuhletal Valley, which offer long walks and plenty to discover.
The IGA sees the addition of a tenth area to explore, introducing a typical English garden as another stop on a world tour that will whisk you away to the likes of Bali and China.
One of the highlights of the IGA is a 1.5 kilometre cable car that has been constructed specially for the exhibition, offering panoramic views of the gardens that are simply not to be missed.
For the little ones, three new play areas based on scenes from Erich Kästner’s popular children’s book ‘The 35th of May, or Conrad’s Ride to the South Seas’ have been constructed for kids to explore and move around in.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for activities for all ages to enjoy, then Berlin’s biggest water playpark is the perfect spot to let off some steam, or there’s always the natural bobsleigh run if you prefer a rapid downhill ride!
The exhibition will continue until October 15th, enthralling waves of visitors with a true ‘OCEAN of colours’ even into the autumn.
