the merkurgarten project


The Merkurgarten is a neighborhood garden in the Seeburgpark in Zurich-Seefeld. (between Mühlebachstrasse and Zollikerstrasse).It builds on an initiative that realized an herb garden at the Kreuzbühlwiese near Kreuzplatz 20 years ago with the help of the Horticulture Office. The ideas for this project were also inspired by Zurich and international examples of „urban gardening“.

The Merkurgarten is more than just a common cultivated garden bed: cultural events such as exhibitions, festivals, concerts, theater and readings accompany the gardening and put it into a larger context. Those who are simply looking for recreation are also welcome to join in on the activities!
