As small, private recreational areas for their owners, allotment gardens have become an integral part of German cities. The history of these gardens has its origins in Leipzig and can now be experienced in a unique museum.

You can follow in the footsteps of Daniel Gottlob Moritz Schreber in the clubhouse of the first German Schreberverein, built in 1896. Opened in 1996, the museum houses the permanent exhibition "Germany's allotment gardeners from the 19th to the 21st century".
