Germany: CGT Tour of Gardens 2011

Nordrhine-Westphalia is the old industrial heartland of Germany not far from the Dutch border.  There are the formal French style gardens at Schloss Benrath and Schloss Augustusburg; regenerated industrial parklands at Duisburg-Nord Landschaftpark; modern urban parks by Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan and the Centre for Garden Art and Culture at Schloss Dyck. Nearby is the Langan Foundation, a minimalist garden and amazing museum, and Insel Hombroich which mixes garden, nature reserve and art in an impressive setting. And as always - excellent, food, wine and camaraderie.

For more information on this trip, see page 5 of the Newsletter for October 2011 which can be found in the Newsletter Archive to the right of this page.  If you want to know more about gardens in Germany, Gartenland NRW is a new magazine: A View from Abroad by Ed Bennis and Lord Ashbrook can be found in the attached PDF and a full English translation on pages 36-37.
