The Story of a Garden

With about 13,500 m² the Japanese Garden Kaiserslautern has become the largest Japanese Garden in Europe and the first of this kind in Rhineland-Palatinate. Not only its size is noteworthy but also its genesis and unique atmosphere are impressive. Just ten years after the foundation of the "Japanese Garden Association Kaiserslautern" in 1997, an exotic garden paradise accessible to the public was designed right in the heart of Kaiserslautern’s city center and in close cooperation between municipal authorities and committed citizens. The garden project can therefore be marked as one of the first public-private-partnership cooperations in the field of landscape architecture in Germany.
