3 Themes, 3 Winners

The Garden Is Blooming Again

With spring’s arrival, Emma’s Hof City Garden undergoes a weekly transformation. Residents are rediscovering the garden, and the nearly one hundred volunteers are busier than ever, maintaining the space and organizing community events.

It’s the perfect time to grab your camera and explore. You might even discover the three themes that shape Emma’s Hof: Get Together, Volunteers, and Nature in the City.

Together in the Garden

Emma’s Hof is a place of tranquility and encounter. It is the result of the time and effort of many neighbors who have worked together to create and maintain this garden.

The garden belongs to everyone and is for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a beautiful place to relax with a book, want to spend time with your children, or are eager to roll up your sleeves and contribute to the community, you are welcome here.

We ask that you feel a sense of responsibility for the garden. Please adhere to our house rules, treat the plants and animals with care, and leave the garden as beautiful as you found it. Respect the peace of our neighbors whose gardens and balconies adjoin this space.

If you find it a pleasant place, we invite you to get involved. As a volunteer, you can contribute to the garden in a flexible manner, meet new people, and work in nature right in the middle of the city. Or become a ‘Friend’ with an annual donation, and help us preserve and enhance this beautiful garden.
