Renovation and reconstruction of the Blüherpark

The northern part of the Blüherpark is the area between the German Hygiene Museum Dresden, Blüherstrasse and Lingnerallee.

Extent of the work:

  • Construction of a new system of paths with direct connections between Lingnerallee and the Hygiene Museum and walking paths to stroll and linger
  • Benches: Refurbishment of the existing benches and installation of a new round bench on the roundabout near Blüherstrasse
  • Planting: extensive new plantings on around 25,000 square meters, 23 new trees and around 23,400 flower bulbs

Basis for the reconstruction:

  • Conservation objectives confirmed by the State Office for the Preservation of Monuments in Saxony
  • This objective is based on scientific research and analysis of the history of the plant. The reconstruction takes up the situation in the Blüherpark at the beginning of the 20th century. At this point in time, the park was redesigned under the direction of the Royal Saxon Upper Garden Director, Johann Carl Friedrich Bouché.
  • When selecting plants, the existing planting and the history of the facility as well as the changed climatic conditions were taken into account.
