Rosengarten at Weinbergsweg
Saturday we spent the first summer night 2017 at Rosengarten with our beloved neighbors and friends from Denmark. Being way too late for Torstraßenfestival we were strolling around seeking for a quiet place with cool drinks and just should have went here earlier: Right on top of the historical Weinbergspark sits the the cultural pavilion, built of natural stones in the 1950s and renovated in 2003 by the architects Anja Berg and Horst Ploss. They and a team of cultural interested neighbors further developed the idea to create a place for various art, community and neighborhood projects. Now the Rosengarten has as a multifunctional area – folding wooden terraces serve as a stage for all kind of artists and as a seating area for guests. In addition to the geometrically arranged beautifully smelling rose beds and a shady pergola, the porphyry wall with the relief images by Waldemar Grzimek is also worth a visit. You can always come here, buy a cold drink at the bar or bring along your own stuff – check out the cultural program from open-air cinema, run by Cinema for Peace and Amnesty International to Hoola Hoop courses on Wednesdays or Swing dance Sundays. Most events are free, but the team of Rosengarten e.V. and their guests always appreciate your donations.
