Interkultureller Garten

Intercultural Garden

+++ ATTENTION: From 1.11. our winter meeting starts in the Dresdner59 – more info below! +++


Once a week, we meet with you – people from the city of Leipzig with and without a refugee or migration biography – in the Burggarten next to the Sternburgbrauerei (Mühlstraße 13) and in the ANNALINDE Gemeinschaftsgarten (Zschochersche Straße 12). Here, we plant, sow, create beds, tend the garden, harvest vegetables and serve up the fruits of our labour together. In this way, we gain ground under our feet and can root ourselves in the city of Leipzig.


In addition, we help you with everyday questions and your personal issues – here we can also draw on a large network of supporters and refer you to many other initiatives in Leipzig.


In this way, we support you in the arriving in Leipzig and offer possibilities to experience self-efficacy and meaningful activities. The Intercultural Garden always offers free admission and everyone is welcome!



This measure is co-financed with tax funds on the basis of the budget passed by the Saxon state parliament. The planned project duration is from 01.01.2020 to 31.12.2021.
