Luthergarten - Andreasbreite (LG1QR2)
500 years of Reformation – 500 trees in Wittenberg
The initial site for the Luthergarten is in the ramparts at the Andreasbreite. Since November 1, 2009, 292 trees have been planted there. At the center of the elliptical garden is a space in the shape of a Luther rose with the Heaven’s Cross. This art installation shows a threefold cross which underlines that we are close to earth and at the same time it symbolizes the heavenly dimension of our being. From that central place, seven paths symbolically lead into the world. Rows of linden trees and different tree species from five continents emphasize the international character of the project. Between these avenues meadows with scattered local fruit trees were developed.
Tree species and sponsors are easily identified by signs in front of the trees. A detailed list can be found on our website, www.luthergarten.de and by touching the screen of this information terminal.
