Climate Change in the UNESCO World Heritage Park Sanssouci
| Park Sanssouci - Schloss Sanssouci
Tour of the dramatic consequences and methods of coping with climate change
The historic gardens are not untouched by the effects of global climate change. Rising temperatures in summer, accompanied by falling precipitation and increasing weather extremes such as storms and heavy rain, are now threatening the existence of the trees, bushes and design elements of the protected parks.
During a tour of the mountain of ruins and central areas of the garden, participants are familiarized with the consequences of climate change using concrete examples.
Not only are the challenges highlighted, but the numerous strategies and practical measures taken by monument conservators and gardeners are also presented and explained, which aim to preserve the common "green heritage" for the future.
