Garden Kingdom Day 2023

Every year on the second Saturday in August, Garden Realm Day commemorates the birthday of Leopold III Friedrich Franz von Anhalt-Dessau. Special events on this day invite you to experience the Garden Kingdom. Throughout the day, you can take part in exhibitions, concerts and guided tours from the Georgium to Oranienbaum and Wörlitz.

The Stadtmarketinggesellschaft Dessau-Roßlau participates in the Garden Kingdom Day with the following tour offer:

10:00 – 13:00: Public bike tour Bauhaus – Junkers – Garden Kingdom.

Prince Franz of Anhalt-Dessau set a reform program in motion with the grounds of the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm, which was the basis for the industrial development of the city of Dessau. This early industrialization attracted both Hugo Junkers and Walter Gropius. All three were united by their belief in progress. Art and technology were to form a unity. Thus, the tour leads to the places where the pioneers worked and shows the close connection that exists between their work.
