Almost 500 trees and shrubs as well as many flowers were planted in Neuchâtel. The city and the Rhine have moved closer together with the State Garden Show. A balance is now being drawn up in southern Baden.
Neuenburg am Rhein (dpa / lsw) - The state garden show in Neuenburg am Rhein comes to an end on Monday (today). The motto of the event is "City-Country-Fluid: Because it brings us together". The upcoming Baden-Württemberg State Horticultural Show is planned for 2024 in Wangen im Allgäu.
The 164-day garden festival attracted many visitors from Germany as well as from France and Switzerland, it said. Visitor numbers are to be announced this Wednesday.
For the show, Rhine gardens were laid out on an area of around 19 hectares, giving visitors direct access to the river. Around 11.8 million euros were invested in the 29th State Garden Show.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Baden-Württemberg was the first federal state to start holding state garden shows in 1980. These and smaller garden shows have already been booked until 2036.
