Sculpture and Nature Exhibition at Schwante Palace Gardens

Sculpture and Nature is an outdoor exhibition at the Schwante palace gardens. The Guardian hailed it as “the perfect post-lockdown attraction” in 2020.

This relatively new sculpture garden in Brandenburg, to the northwest of Berlin, mixes together art and nature in an exciting new manner, allowing you to stroll through idyllic greenery, witnessing the interplay between nature and art. In 2021, the exhibition runs from June 4 and runs until October 31.

Walk in nature and discover contemporary sculpture

Maintaining social distance is of high priority to help prevent the further spread of coronavirus. On the other hand, having a day out and gaining new experiences are also very important for the human condition. That’s why the opening of this exhibition couldn’t have come at a better time. It's perfect for those wishing to take a trip to the German countryside and take in new art while staying cautious.

Schwante Palace or Schlossgut Schwante, aims to present the space as “a zone of free thinking and speculative imagination”. The sheer size of the gardens at the palace allows visitors to dedicate a whole day to enjoying and exploring art and nature. There is even a restaurant and farm shop, so visitors can refuel before resuming wandering through the sculpture garden.
