From 3 July to 4 September the Herrenhausen Summer Academy will take place in the Wilhelm Busch Museum – German Museum for Caricature and Critical Graphic Art.
Every Thursday from 6–7 pm experts will talk about the manifold facets of the history of garden culture. The topics range from nature and gardens as viewed by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz through the gardens at the time of Goethe, the landscape gardens in the region of Hildesheim to Hannover’s parks and open spaces in the present and future. After the lectures you will be able to continue talking about what you have heard in the museum’s garden while enjoying the legendary grilled sausages with potato salad and a beer.
The summer academy, begun in 2009, takes place in cooperation with the Friends of the Herrenhausen Gardens, the Centre of Garden Art and Landscape Architecture (CGL) of the Leibniz Universität Hannover, the town of Hannover, capital of Lower Saxony, and the Wilhelm Busch Society.
Admission to all events is free.
