Why locals love it
Located at a busy traffic roundabout in the middle of the start-up and hip entrepreneurial district, the Prinzessinengarten is an oasis for those having stared at a computer screen for too long - as well as everybody else.
Why you should visit it
The Prinzessinengarten is one of the largest and most successful urban gardening projects in Germany and you can learn a lot about urban gardening and reclaiming public space for social/ecological causes here. Also, there is wonderful cafe that serves lunch (made from the garden's harvest) and excellent cake.
You can purchase seedlings - now wouldn't that be an exquisite souvenir for someone you love?
