    The Citizen sundial was installed here in the Japanese garden in Planten un Blomen in 1976. Not only can you use it to determine the exact local time, the globe also shows the distribution of sunlight all over the world at the right time and place.The time capsule, which is located in the base of the clock, is strange. The lock can be opened with a chisel in 2006, 2026 and 2076. The time capsule is then removed, supplemented with current documents of its generation and sealed again. The opening is then closed again. A fantastic idea to document the contemporary history.

    The Japanese Garden is located between Congress Center Hamburg (CCH) and Hamburg Fair. It was created in 1990 according to a concept by the Japanese landscape architect Yoshikuni Araki. The garden is the largest of its kind in Europe. Its centerpiece is a small lake and the rustic Japanese tea house, which opens onto the water surface with a terrace. The tea house is accessed through a wooden gate, which symbolically limits the intimate area. Here, tea ceremonies are celebrated in the summer months and many other events are held.
    In harmony with East Asian aesthetics and philosophy, plants, rocks and water are an idealized, reduced image of nature. Here, visitors can fully reflect on the elements of nature and on themselves in the hurried city life behind them.
    Despite its strict design, the Japanese garden blends unobtrusively into the park landscape. Together with the Japanese Landscape Garden on the other side of the exhibition hall, it shapes a central area of Planten un Blomen.

    This medicinal plant garden was created on the occasion of the International Garden Show, the IGA in 1963. The medicinal plants can be found in seven walled courtyards. The medicinal plants are each therapeutically related to an organ or organ group of the human body.
    Paved paths lead through the medicinal plant garden in the middle of the city. The pharmacist association was involved in designing and advising this teaching garden. For safety reasons, the poisonous plants have now been replaced by culinary herbs.

    The Great Sundial is one of the few relics from the founding of the Planten un Blomen park that has survived the decades. In 1935, the site on which, among other things, the old cemetery and the zoological garden were set up as a park to host the "Low German Garden Show". For example, the water cascade preserved to this day. The richly decorated sundial is also part of the exhibition. During the Second World War, the park area was not spared from destruction. In the post-war period, it was mainly the International Garden Shows in 1953, 1963 and 1973 that led to regular redesigns. Today, a variety of influences can be discovered in the park, which contribute to a lively and varied experience.sh-kunst.de/prof-puetz-grosse-sonnenuhr

    Whether Japanese tea ceremony or pottery course for children, a walk under palm trees or a break between roses: Planten and Blomen, with its location between Dammtorbahnhof and Millerntor, is not only Hamburg's most central park, but also one of the most versatile. Hardly any other green area can offer such a huge range of play and sports facilities, exotic gardens and regular cultural events. At the same time, the park captivates with well-groomed herbaceous beds, secluded shady spots and numerous water areas.On sunny days, countless hamburgers are drawn from the surrounding city center offices to the green benches and deckchairs for lunch break. At the weekends, families flock to the playgrounds, to the mini golf course or to one of the many events for children. Romantic townspeople and tourists come to the park especially on warm summer evenings to watch the famous water light concerts at Parksee. Colored water fountains dance to the sounds of various well-known pieces of music.Even in the cold season, the park does not hibernate: the skaters frolic on the ice rink, while visitors to the tropical houses dream of warmer regions.ndr.de/ratgeber/reise/hamburg/Wo-Hamburg-blueht-und-spielt-Planten-un-Blomen,plantenunblomen188.html

    At first glance, the bronze animal sculpture on Parksee in Planten un Blomen is a little irritating: the body shape does not really fit the image of a flamingo. A closer look reveals that two flamingos are so close together that their bodies almost unite. While the feet are still clearly distinguishable, necks and heads seem to merge.
    The sculpture by the sculptor Hans Martin Ruwold from 1953 thus appears slightly abstract and emphasizes the togetherness of the two animals.

    Unfortunately, the lady has no title, but she succeeded, albeit with a strange hairstyle. Incidentally, IGA means "International Horticultural Exhibition", to which it was probably created.

    It looks like the classic spa garden, but it is not. Here concerts are held, but also theatrical performances and improvisations.
