Climate change in the green world heritage site - and what we can do

  • Highlights
Man-made climate change is also affecting Sanssouci Park in Potsdam. The gardeners and conservationists at the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg (SPSG) have long been researching how the trees' resilience to the effects of climate change can be strengthened.

Extreme heat, intense sunlight and persistent drought have damaged almost 80 percent of the trees in the UNESCO World Heritage park.
Between 160 and 300 of them have had to be felled every year since 2017.

In the open-air exhibition "Re:Generation. Climate change in the green world heritage - and what we can do", which takes place in the heart of Sanssouci Park, the SPSG would like to share its findings with visitors and engage them in conversation.

Numerous approaches, strategies and progress will be presented at 30 exhibition stations. Interested visitors will also be given tips on how they can help protect the environment and the climate in their everyday lives.


Near the Western Vineyard Terraces, the focus is on water, while northwest of the Chinese House, information is provided on tree life and death. Not only will problems and challenges be highlighted, but ideas, scientific approaches and pioneering experiments will also be presented.
For example, visitors can get to know a promising new generation of trees in an "oak nursery" and experience a variety of alternative and water-saving irrigation methods in action.

The Fürst-Pückler-Museum - Park and Palace Branitz Foundation is also a guest with a station and will be presenting its work as part of the cooperation "Historic Gardens in a Changing Climate.
Perspectives for the green cultural heritage of Sanssouci and Branitz" and will be presenting its tree university.

The exhibition is complemented by a variety of suggestions on how visitors can become active themselves. Particularly important here is the importance of a joint commitment to protecting the climate and nature - because only together can we shape a future for the World Heritage Site. We would be delighted if you could join us.
