Himmelbeet community garden in Berlin

The great multicultural community garden

One of the biggest community projects in Wedding is the Himmelbeet: on around 300 vegetable beds, everyone in the neighbourhood is welcome to dig, cultivate and harvest produce. And of course to enjoy it: for example a cup of coffee and a delicious piece of home-made pizza baked in the garden’s own brick oven.

A lively young neighbourhood has developed around Leopoldplatz: students and artists live here, there are cultural events and every year during Ramadan there is a communal “Iftar”, where everyone ends their daily fast together.
