HighLight as special botanic glasshouse
In Überlingen the Landesgartenschau would have been organised in the year 2020, due to COVID-19 it has been postponed untill 2021. The national garden show takes place from 23 April to 18 October of that year. For this show a new exhibition glasshouse has been built by Smiemans Projecten. The highlight curved glasshouse construction was realised on a turnkey basis. On top of the technical and facility space a place for visitors is realised so that they have a good view on the plant collection.
Project for Landesgartenschau 2021
The project designed by EdenParks, part of Smiemans Projecten, will fulfill two objectives: first as a meeting place and pavilion during the Landesgartenschau 2021. Then, after 2021, as a permanent facility for mainly cacti.
Special collection of cacti
The city of Überlingen owns a special collection of cacti, which is currently exhibited in the historic city garden in the summer and then wintered in a plant house on the grounds of the Stadtgärtnerei. Annually, costs of € 45,000 are incurred through construction and dismantling. Moreover, there is the inevitable transport damage to the valuable plants. In addition, the cacti are in the greenhouse for about seven months, which is not accessible to the public. Thanks to the realisation of this plant house, the special collection of cacti can be visited all year round.
1250 years Uberlingen
Since 2016 the city is engaged in the construction of a six-hectare landscape park on the edge of Lake Constance for the Landesgartenschau.
