The German Garden, in 1926, was the second garden within the Cleveland Cultural Gardens to be constructed. German-American Karl Wolfram was instrumental in creating the Cultural Gardens and in developing the German Cultural Garden.
Under the shade and comfort of tall trees and along the lush paths of flora and fauna, you'll find statues and tributes to German cultural figures including poet-philosophers Goethe, Schiller, and Heine; musicians Bach and Beethoven; writer von Hutten; artist Durer; dramatist/critic Lessing; educator Froebel; physical culturist Jahn; and scientist Humboldt.
In the summer months, the German Garden has welcomed crowds to relax and enjoy traditional German choir and band performances.
The German Garden requires year-round maintenance and a robust team of volunteers. The revitalization of this beautiful section within the Cleveland Cultural Gardens is being organized by members of D.A.N.K.
Please consider lending your time and talents to towards upkeep and fundraising for this beautiful garden. Contact Mark Bohn for more information.
