Historical Tour of the Palm Gardens of Leipzig

10 October @ 15:00 - 16:30

WHAT: A historical tour of the Leipzig Palm Garden (Palmengarten) given to us by Daniela Neumann of Entdeckt in Leipzig
“One has a good time here!”
The Leipzig Palm Garden was a popular destination around 1900. It attracted thousands of visitors daily for its restaurants and amusements. How did the Palm Gardens look back then? Were there really palm trees? Why is the Gesellschaftshaus no longer standing? What evidence of the past can still be found in the park today? 
You will find out on this tour! Join us as we discover the Leipzig Palmengarten. (Old postcards and photos will be available to see as reference.)
WHEN: Tuesday, October 10, 15:00 – 16:30
MEETING PLACE: The tour begins near Jahnallee, but we will meet at Capo-House and walk over to the park together.
The tour ends at Karl-Heine-Straße, near the Karl Heine Monument. Wear comfortable shoes and the event will happen rain or shine- but if the weather is truly miserable we will postpone it to Wednesday, October 18th.
COST: 10 euros per person
