“New Landscape Ronneburg”, with its modelling and plant highlights,
represents a masterpiece of modern landscape architecture.
The Large Arboretum is a unique tree garden. With about
400 trees and 56 tree species, it displays the whole variety of the flora in the
The Thuringia Worlds in the Large Arboretum present various
landscape themes. This is where landscape architects from Thuringia make their
garden ideas come to life. A looped path will link the Small Words and the Large
The Ronneburg Balcony forms a new urban boundary between
Ronneburg and the open countryside. With a manor, “event meadow”, discovery
tower, tree groves, the “New Barn” and the rose garden, it is an ideal place to
linger in. The "Ronneburg Balcony" allows you to enjoy a view that stretches far
across the landscape.
The "Wechselflor" – or ever-changing array of flowers – with
its multifarious nuances of colour is located right near the entrance area. The
flower meadow will be in bloom the whole year through – changing according to
the season – an eye-opener, delicate in spring, lush in the autumn.
The generous Perennial Wildflower Beds illustrate a
contemporary, low-maintenance planting concept with a continuous flowering cycle
that follows the seasons. An attractive interplay of form and colour.
The Wild Groves, whether as a dense flowering hedgerow or
protective forest fringe, will provide visitors with interesting information
about nature – and also act as a feeding and nesting place for animals.
The New Barn houses the “Bismuth Exhibition“. This is where
the visitor can enjoy a graphic information display regarding the historical ore
mine industry, the clean-up activities of Wismut GmbH, and the renaturisation
and revitalisation of the region.
With 10,000 floribunda and the rose-covered pavilion, the Rose
Garden is probably the most romantic place of the entire “New
Landscape”. Bordered by mature oaks and the manor, it is an oasis of peace.
From the "Ronneburg Balcony" right over to Kirschberg mountain, the
Adventure Bridge spans the “New Valley”. With a length of 230m and 25m
above the valley floor, it is one of Europe’s longest wooden bridges.
In tribute to the former ore mining industry, the
severely geometric shapes of the 1km long and 24m high terrace called the
"Lichtenberger Kanten" stands in dynamic contrast to the pleasing undulation of the
terrain of the man-made landscape that has been sculpted over the centuries.
Four play areas have been designed according to the motto of “Playing with
the Elements”. Apart from the theme of earth, fire, water and air, there’s also
a dexterity area to meet the needs of the small BUGA visitors.
