The narrative focus lies on the history of Frankfurt's gardens and parks from the 18th century to the current garden and park culture of the 21st century.

The interactive spatial staging links the history of Frankfurt's green spaces with the socio-political and ecological aspects of the present in times of climate change and housing shortages.

Huge focus walls and portals open the respective chapters.

Sounds, atmospheric projections in the room, interviews and interactive installations enrich the thematic rooms and make the exciting exhibition narrative tangible for visitors and actively encourage them to act and participate.

A rally for school children aged 14 and over presents the topics at 17 stations in an age-appropriate way.

In a playful way, it conveys the importance of green spaces in the city and how they are changing.
